The Naval Anti Drone System (NADS), developed by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and manufactured by Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), has been ordered by the Indian Navy and is now being installed on its surface warships. This is the first indigenously developed anti-drone system to be inducted into the Indian Armed Forces, providing an effective all-encompassing counter to the increased drone threat to strategic naval installations.
Equipped with both hard kill and soft kill capabilities, the NADS can detect and jam micro drones, and use a laser-based kill mechanism to terminate targets. The system uses radar, electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors, and radio frequency (RF) detectors to detect and jam the micro drones. The RF/global navigation satellite system (GNSS) detects the frequency being used by the controller, and the signals are then jammed.
The NADS has already been deployed to provide security cover for the Republic Day Parade, the Prime Minister’s Independence Day Address to the Nation, and the Modi-Trump roadshow. The system offers 360-degree coverage, and both the static and mobile versions of NADS will be supplied to the Indian Navy within a short time from the signing of the contract. The DRDO’s anti-drone technology system provides both ‘soft kill’ and ‘hard kill’ options to the Indian Armed Forces to tackle fast-emerging aerial threats.
