Of the 23, the Indian Air Force (IAF) will receive 10, the Army 7 and the Navy, 6. The contracts with Bharat Electronics (BEL) for the systems, developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), are been inked. The ADS is badly needed, keeping in mind the drone attack the drone attack on Jammu airport in July, in which 2 IAF personnel were injured. 

The ADS consists of a radar, an electro-optical system and an electronic surveillance system, is capable of a "soft kill" and a "hard kill." In the soft kill, the drone's communication systems are jammed. Using a laser to disable it us the hard kill. The ADS was deployed for demonstration purposes during the last two Republic and Independence Day functions.
