The SİPER system was gradually built piece-by-piece throughout the firing tests. For example, the first firing test involved the SİPER Product 1 missile, developed from the HİSAR-RF missile, with a booster, GPS-aided midcourse guidance, and EİRS Early Warning Radar. Additions such as AIR low-altitude radar and the longer ranged SİPER Product 2 missile followed. 

New versions of SİPER missiles are planned, one of them being the SİPER Product 2 missile with a booster, according to TUBITAK SAGE Director Gürcan Okumuş. During a YouTube session, Okumuş stated that a range increase by a factor of 1.5 to 2 is possible.
