TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iran unveiled the first land-based positioning home-made system in a ceremony attended by Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan.

'Positioning is one of the basis of military operations on ground, air and naval areas,' he said.

'Positioning systems are used in civil transportation, railroad, aviation, shipping, civil activities and mapping which can be used in 270 cases,' he said.
