Air Surveillance, Radar Stations Double

The number of advanced air defense electronic surveillance and radar stations has doubled in the past five years, a deputy commander of the Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base said on Saturday.  Highlighting the base’s achievements, Lieutenant General Alireza Sabahifard added that the number of air defense missile sites have also increased 1.5-fold in this period, Tasnim News Agency reported. He noted that the air defense base’s domestic experts have managed to design and build its required defense systems. “Today, the integrated and domestic air defense network is powerfully monitoring and has full dominance over the country’s airspace,” he said. Last month, commander of the base, Lieutenant General Farzad Esmaeili, highlighted the country’s air defense capabilities, saying the integrated air defense network is protecting over 3,000 sensitive sites across the country. “[Iran’s] air defense doctrine is based on 360-degree threat [detection and assessment] and therefore all of our artillery, radar, missile, electronic surveillance and monitoring systems should coordinate with each other and act as an integrated network to put up a coherent defense,” he said.
