The designations target Rayan Fan Kav Andish Co., Kish Mechatronics Co., Fanavarihaye Hava Pishran Sazeh Sepehr Co LLC and Mersad Mohajer Co. LLC, which have helped supply U.S. dual-use electronics to Iran or helped the country evade sanctions. OFAC also sanctioned Afshin Khajeh Fard, chief of the Iran Aviation Industries Organization, who oversees IAIO’s “efforts to produce UAVs and missiles.”
