As a very close hybrid air defence system, DEWS uses electromagnetic and laser technology against asymmetric threats. Threats are interfered with by Electromagnetic Jamming System [EJS] and are destroyed by Laser Destruction System [LDS] with two-layered defence architecture. It can also be used to counter bomb traps in residential areas and roadside Improvised Explosive Devices [IEDs].
