The Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base was tasked to install and put into operation the state-of-the-art “Qaem” radar system, which has a range of 1,000 kilometers, Fars News Agency reported.
Once operational, the radar system will play a key role in monitoring movements of all planes in the region.
Another long-range 3D radar system dubbed “Qadir” has been put into service in southwestern Iran recently.
Also, the “Sepehr” radar system with a range of 3,000 kilometers is about to become operational. It has successfully passed preliminary field tests.
Early this month, Iran unveiled two domestically-manufactured cutting-edge radar systems capable of detecting stealth targets at high altitudes.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and reached self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
The Islamic Republic has repeatedly stressed that its military might poses no threat to other countries, stating that its defense doctrine is merely based on deterrence.
