Chennai-based Big Bang Boom Solutions will deliver its Anti Drone Defence System (ADDS) to the Indian Air Force (IAF) from August, Gaurav Sharma, chief government relationship officer of the defence startup firm told Janes.
Speaking at the East Tech 2022 event in Kolkata on 8 July, Sharma said the company received a request for proposal (RFP) in June 2022 to provide an undisclosed number of ADDS units to the IAF.
The complete ADDS system is portable and can be operated by a single person. The system utilises radar detection, electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) tracking, and passive radio frequency (RF) scanning features to provide countermeasures against rogue unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), Big Bang Boom Solutions said.
The system, which has an upmast weight of 25 kg, has a detection range of up to 20 km and provides an effective jamming range of 15–16 km, Sharma said. The system has a wide frequency detection band (400 Mhz – 6 Ghz), artifical intelligence (AI)-enabled pattern recognition, and can provide jamming solutions in less than five seconds after the UAV has entered the jamming range.
