As representatives at High Precision Systems have announced, the purpose of the ADS rifle was to replace the current APS (underwater specialized rifle) as the combat weapon for the special units of the Russian Navy.

On land, the rifle shoots 5.45x39mm caliber ammunition and VOG-25 and VOG-25P ammunition from its under-barrel grenade launcher. Underwater fire was made possible by cartridges designed specifically for the ADS.

The new rifle was shown to Russian President Vladimir Putin during his visit to Tula on January 20, 2014. The weapon successfully passed trial operation in the Ministry of Defense naval commando units, in the North, Far East, the Black Sea, and in accordance with the decision of the government, it was adopted by the Russian Armed Forces. By order of the Ministry of Defense, with some technical and tactical characteristics (TTC), the rifle was declassified from "Secret" status.

Currently, the weapon is intended for the domestic market. However, Rosoboronexport is leading the marketing campaign for the rifle and plans to export.
