US RQ-170 Drone Data Fully-Decoded – Iran
Commander of the Aerospace Division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said on Monday that the data has been â€śfully decoded.â€ť
Hajizadeh stated that the IRGC has also discovered all the areas the drone had flown over.
On December 4, 2011, the Iranian militaryâ€™s electronic warfare unit announced that it had successfully downed the US RQ-170 reconnaissance and spy drone in the eastern part of Iran with minimal damage.
The aircraft, designed and developed by the American company Lockheed Martin, had crossed into Iranâ€™s airspace over the border with Afghanistan.
The Iranian commander noted that the US President Barack Obama had told Israeli officials that the drone was doing a spying mission on Iranâ€™s nuclear sites, but after decoding, IRGC experts found out that the aircraft had not conducted â€śeven one nuclear mission.â€ť
