"The command and control system of the Southwestern zone acts as a part of the Air Defense Base's integrated command and control network and is capable of precisely monitoring and defending the Islamic Republic of Iran's airspace in all dimensions," Sabahifard told reporters on Wednesday, November 25, 2015.

"The system is a tactical combat system that operates through using tracing and collecting the active and passive data of hostile equipment and through cyber operations and electronic warfare," he added.

Iran enjoys a highly powerful and capable integrated air defense system equipped with the state-of-the-art equipment.

In September, Iran unveiled two new home-made radar systems named Nazir and Bina with the capability of detecting radar-evading targets and fighting against electronic warfare on the occasion of Air Defense Day.

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.

The radar can detect all radar-evading targets and is capable of fighting electronic warfare.

Bina and Nazir radar systems have been mounted in the mountainous and plain regions in Southeastern Iran.

Elaborating on the specifications of the two radar systems, Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli said that they are fully home-made and unique in the region and the world.

"The radars have been designed in different frequencies and with jump frequency and also in (special) bands which cannot be heard by the enemies," he added.

Esmayeeli explained about other features of the radar systems, and said they are multi-range radars, meaning that they can detect wide-body and stealth targets as well as small planes, including drones, in long distances before they can approach Iranian borders.

He expressed the hope that the two radar systems will be mass-produced within one year.
