The Air Defense Anti-Tank System (ADATS) is a short ranged surface-to-air missile launcher and an anti-tank platform, built on the chassis of the M113. It is manufactured by Oerlikon-Contraves, a Swiss company in the Rheinmetall Defense Group.

ADATS was originally designed for the U.S. Army to be used in a program called the Forward Area Air-Defense (FAAD), but the program was scrapped with the end of the Cold War. It is currently in service with the Canadian Forces and in Thailand.
