The Indian Navy is set to bolster its defences against aerial threats with the phased deployment of the Naval Anti-Drone System (NADS) across its frontline warships. This announcement comes after Admiral R Hari Kumar, Chief of the Naval Staff, revealed the initiative during a media interaction onboard INS Sandhayak after its commissioning.

Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and manufactured by Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), NADS represents a significant milestone in India’s Atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliance) initiative. It is the first indigenously developed anti-drone system inducted into the Indian Armed Forces, a testament to the collaborative efforts of multiple BEL units and DRDO labs across the country.

NADS boasts both hard kill and soft kill capabilities, offering a comprehensive defence against micro-drones. It can detect and jam these drones using radar, electro-optical/infrared sensors, and radio frequency detectors. Additionally, the system employs a laser-based kill mechanism for neutralizing identified threats.

This versatile system has already proven its effectiveness in high-profile events like the Republic Day Parade, the Prime Minister’s Independence Day address, and the Modi-Trump roadshow, demonstrating its 360-degree coverage and reliability.

The deployment of NADS across frontline warships signifies a crucial step towards enhancing the Indian Navy’s preparedness against evolving aerial threats. This indigenous system not only strengthens the Navy’s defensive capabilities but also positions India as a leader in developing advanced anti-drone technology.
