Skip to comments.Iran: We Stole All Secrets From US Drone
Posted on 12/11/2012 5:41:17 AM PST by chessplayer
An Iranian military commander claimed Monday that the country has stolen all the secrets held by a high-tech American surveillance drone that crashed in Iran last year, according to Iranian news reports.
"All the intelligence in this drone has been completely decoded and extracted and we know each and every step it has taken," said Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, Commander of the Aerospace Division for the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard, according to an English-language report by Iran's semi-official Fars News Agency.

If a monkey finds a wrist watch and manages to tear it apart into all the tiny gears and springs, it doesn’t mean he can build another watch or put that one back together.
Now the Chinese or Russians, that’s another story.
I’ll bet the Media is going to love reporting this story.
Please. A. Either they did and are ridiculously stupid to brag about it, or B. They didn’t and are trying so hard to feel special and scary. I personally believe the latter.
Why don’t these things blow up when they’re captures or tampered with?
thank Obama for another accomplishment. that thing should have been destroyed BEFORE it landed in Iran. Oh wait, we can’t use real bullets over there, we mit hit something.
Oh, that is the one “gifted” to them by thew nobama administration last year. Merry Christmas!
Or, we let Iran shoot it down to get its secrets. Problem is all the secrets of it are fake.
Obama’s “leeway” to the Russians
What lieing pieces of excrement these Iranian’s are.They didn’t steal anything.That was a gift from resident obama.They were meant to get it.
Who controls these drones - The State Department, the Air Force, the Army, the CIA? Who lost control of this drone? Why was it not recovered nor destroyed?
Even after O begged them to give it back!!!
All they had to do was ask barry. That’s what he’s there for.
This story has cracks. The drone was a gift from Obama. No need to decode anything.
All your base are belong to us.
What? Zero’s real B.C. Was on the drone?
Its foolish to think Iran doesn’t have high level scientists and engineers.
The laws of physics applied in the US are also equally applied in Iran.
In another news story on this it mentioned that the iranians had released some of the data they were able to extract
proving they did extract it
I guess it is possible that as noather freeper in this thread suggested, any date in it was fake
if so WHY did the DOD plead with 0dumbo to destroy the Drone?
C. Obama sent them the instructions.
D. Obama sent them a couple dozen ready to fly.
This sounds like a great way to pass along false information or to introduce a virus. Not that the current regime would do anything to harm a sworn enemy
I would expect the Russians and the Chinese (and French, apparently) to already have the blueprints for this drone...as well as for the machine tools and composite materials fabrication required to build it...oh, and the computer hardware and software as well!
The software unravels if tampered with. Nothing but random ones-and-zeros.
They are lying.
Our software codes are designed to unravel if tampered with. We do that to all our jets and other technology supporting airborne ops over enemy territory.
The code unravels and nothing remains but junk. No matter who you are, you can’t “extract” it, especially the dung-drinking iranians.
Talked to someone who was a drone operator. Sits at a console out in the SW US desert. He said they had no clue as to how the first drone was brought down. They were never supposed to land like that if control was lost. The Iranians clearly have the capability to take full control of the drone.
In other news, an order for thousands of cases of Ovaltine was reportedly received from the Middle East.
“The Iranians clearly have the capability to take full control of the drone.”
Shouldn’t there be a simple software fix for that?
Not if you can mimic the US control codes and programming language. Only two possibilities back then. Internal sabotage due to a virus or the Iranians gained control. Since this is the second drone loss, one would assume they should have corrected any internal sabotage issues by now. Take the Iranians for their words during the first drone loss. They made the drone think that landing in Iran was landing back at the drones home base. Perhaps not full control yet, but close. When the drones start firing on our own ships and troops, then the Iranian will have achieved full control.
The first UAV was simple lost link. Enters hold pattern while attempts are made to re-establish link. Then it is to RTB. Thing is, the control signal for that first UAV is encrypted and the dung-drinking Iranians can’t intrude/take over. Think “encrypted Have-Quick” radio signal. So, simple lost link and the UAV simply ran out of gas—and that platform has auto-trim so it pancaked-in, didn’t auger in. It is as a simple as that.
The ScanEagle UAV was under encrypted control as well. ScanEagles are well established and the cause of the loss is TBD.
For over a decade I worked FMS to various ME countries. No matter the gear, and training, they are still third-world camel humpers. No getting around that fact. We could even give them the F-22 and we would still kick their smelly butts. That is a fact. They simple don’t have the culture, initiative or smarts to use the gear.
So the UAV lost its link they ran out of gas and soft landed in enemy territory. Great programming there guys. According to the person I talked to, think he was a console pilot, that was not supposed to ever happen.
Programming worked. There are aspects we aren’t talking about here. Ask your “console pilot,” he should understand why.
I hope you’re correct and that they generally remain inbred, livestock-ravishing incompetents for decades to come.
