Iranian Air Defense Commander Declares Development of 3 New Systems
“Sama is a dual-use system for meteorology and defense systems and it has been deployed in 400 points and it will be deployed in all parts of the country in future,” General Esmayeeli told reporters in a press conference in Tehran on Monday.
Adding that Samet 1 is another system manufactured by Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base, he said the system was developed to integrate the electronic tapping systems and is capable of tracing the targets in the air, ground and sea.
“The third system is Sami’e which has been produced by Iran for the first time in the region,” General Esmayeeli said, adding that it is capable of tracing targets and tracking in mid altitude.
Elsewhere, he warned that the military forces of any aggressive country will be confronted crushingly and buried in Iran.
In relevant remarks in January, General Esmayeeli underlined that Iran’s missile and radar systems that have multi-folded in recent years are fully prepared to confront any threat.
“Our missile, electronic tapping and radar systems have multi-folded and we can confront the modern threats of the world,” General Esmayeeli told reporters in Tehran.
He also stressed that Iran’s Air Defense units have been deployed in some 3,700 locations across the country to give a crushing response to enemies’ threats.
Also, last September, General Esmayeeli said that the skilled Iranian Air Defense Forces are using home-made state-of-the-art weapons and equipment to defend the country, he said that they have discouraged the enemies from launching a military attack against Iran by enhancing their preparedness and diversifying their options to stand against different types of threats.
General Esmayeeli made the remarks two days after the country’s Armed Forces put into operation the home-made ‘Nazir’ radar system with the capability of detecting radar-evading targets and fighting against electronic warfare.
“Nazir radar system was put into operation and from now on, no radar-evading flying object can enter the Islamic Iran’s skies without permission,” General Esmayeeli said.
“The radar is special to detecting the small flying objects and MQ1, RQ4 and U2 aircrafts and can easily detect and trace ballistic and cruise missiles and most importantly, the radar-evading aircraft,” he added.
Nazir is a long-range and high-precision radar system which is highly capable of detecting targets in low radar cross section and is resistant to radar evading and anti-radar missiles.
