The Indian Army has significantly bolstered its air defense capabilities along the northern borders with China by deploying new indigenous integrated drone detection and interdiction systems (IDD&IS).

Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) in collaboration with Bharat Electronics, these Mark-1 variant IDD&IS systems represent a significant stride in India’s domestic defense production.

The IDD&IS offers a two-pronged approach to counter drone threats. It can first disrupt hostile drones through jamming technology, with a range of 2 to 5 kilometers. If necessary, the system can then eliminate drones using lasers at a distance exceeding 800 meters. With a detection range of 5 to 8 kilometers, the IDD&IS provides ample time to react to potential drone incursions.

The initial deployment consists of seven IDD&IS units, integrating seamlessly with existing counter-drone measures employed by the Army Air Defence (AAD). This signifies the first phase of a broader rollout, with future iterations promising extended interception ranges for even greater security.

DRDO’s commitment to strengthening India’s defense infrastructure extends beyond the IDD&IS. The organization is actively developing even more powerful directed energy weapon systems, including high-energy lasers and high-powered microwave technology, to counter future threats.
