According to a Linkedin post from Atul Tripathi, Chennai-based Big Bang Boom Solutions (India) will deliver its Anti-Drone Defence System (ADDS) to the Indian Air Force (IAF) in August. The post quoted Gaurav Sharma, chief government relationship officer of the defence start-up, as the source of the article.
“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,” said the article.
According to the company’s website:
“The Anti-Drone Defence System ADDS combat all the threats posed by unmanned aerial vehicles including commercially available drones. The advanced long range sensors, state of the art artificial intelligence and computer vision algorithms helps in precise detection and identification of drone and its payload, with drone flight pattern recognition. The ADDS has effective RF detection range of 5 kms and visual detection range of 700 m. The smart neural network of ADDS enables autonomous decision in counter measures like signal jamming in 5 km radius, however it also relays prompt recommendations to the human operator for manual countermeasure when needed.”
