Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base in Iran, Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli announced that the country's experts have developed three new air defense systems including the Sama meteorology system, the Samet and Sami'e tracking systems. Samet-1 is an automation system coordinating the air defense sites that collect data.
     
"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, August 28, 2017.

Sama, used for detecting aerial targets and controlling air traffic, is the first of its kind made in a West Asian country. It automatically receives data from flights crossing the Iranian airspace and defines the flight path in a short span.

The Samet 1 is another system manufactured by Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base which 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.

Iran has in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of military equipment, including air defense systems that use cutting edge technologies.
