Iran claims to have shot down US drone ( RQ10 )

Iran's armed forces have shot down an unmanned US spy plane that violated its eastern borders, military sources say.

Iranian media reports said the drone - identified as a type RQ10 - suffered minimal damage and was now in the hands of the armed forces.

The military response to the airspace violation "will not be limited to Iran's borders any more", one unnamed source told Iran's al-Alam TV.

So anyone any idea what this new "RQ10" is then? :P

@bthebest

You can buy a RQ10 for a few hundred pound and it has 2 cameras but of corse this is a civilian version called the parrot ar drone http://ardrone.parrot.com/parrot-ar-drone/uk/ which is basicly the same as the real thing but is more of a toy than a hardcore piece of survailence kit =)

And I doubt the USAF uses it or it would survive being 'shot down' with minimal damage.

I call BS. They shot it down and it had "minimal damage"? How'd they pull that off? I'm thinking they managed to get some friends to get some wreckage of a drone (or blew one themselves) from somewhere and are playing this off, in the hopes of creating a distraction. Now that talk of an attack on Iran is heating up more and more, they must be getting nervous.

Apparently ISAF confirmed it had lost communication/control of the drone last week over Afghanistan. Some reports say that Iranian forces may have hacked the UAV.

If true. Not good at all. The RQ-170 is a Dark Recon Drone. High altitude if I'm not mistaken.

Operator "Lost Control?" Uplink?, airframe/engine failure? If it was jammed the Russians were involved.

I wonder why the Iranians felt the need to publicise this. I understand the quest for propaganda....but personally I think that if I happened to down a drone from an adversary I would keep it quiet, no need to let them know you can down their drones.........

Medium altitude (wing aspect ratio not optimal for high altitude: think WB-57, U-2, RQ-4)

I'd be surprised if Russia was involved. Hizbulla (Iran's proxy in Lebanon) has been making news lately about using a similar technique with an Israeli drone, recovering one recently. If these storeis are true, there are also rumors that the drone was intentinally landed in Lebanon as a trojan horse, recovered by Hizbulla, brought back to base, and responsible or that huge arms depot explosion a few weeks back when it finally went "pop". Iran could maybe have been using a similar technique, or maybe they had nothing to do with the downing at all.

USAF had an RQ-9 that went out of contact and headed towards Iran a few years ago, but an F-15E shot it down. Earlier than that an MQ-1 in Iraq was headed uncontrolled towards the Iranian border but an F-16 downed it too.

I thought these drones, especially the higher-tech ones, had self-destruct mechanisms on them? It would be dumb to put classified equipment in an unmanned vehicle and then send it over hostile territory with no way of ensuring some of the sensitive gear or even the majority of the airframe would be neutralized if contact is lost.

Here's an interesting article. Claims operators can basically wipe all software and data remotely.

Now, if contact is lost, how would you use self destruct? Seems dangerous to ground crews, though QF-4s do carry old AIM-9 warheads for this purpose.

And the QF-16 was just tested with the same thing at Eglin AF.

I wasn't counting it though since none are actually flying yet, just as there are no QF-86/100/102/106s flying now.

Quoting Spacepope (Reply 14):

My first guess would be the drone could have a certain amount of autonomy built-in. If it loses contact with its operator it could go into a "parking" mode (flying a predetermined pattern) waiting for contact to be reestablished. After a period of time (just a few minutes) it could autonomously wipe any recorded data and fry any sensitive electronics, and then self-destruct. If it loses contact with its operator AND becomes unstable in flight, or maintains contact but just becomes unstable and can't regain wings-level (indicative of taking hostile fire) then that scenario could also trigger self-destruct.

Having a self-destruct mechanism doesn't necessarily make it more dangerous for ground crews. As you pointed out, these drones can already carry armament, some of which have far more destructive power than would be needed to obliterate the drone.

That is very true, however all armament functions are "man-in-the-loop", whereas the self-destruct would be (basically) autonomous use of explosives. It may be perfectly reliable, it just makes me uneasy from a safety standpoint. AFAIK no US drone has a self-destruct function as of now.

The other functions are already used in drones (flying a set pattern) and we've even seen a loss due to a bad "fly home" command after lost contact: A drone in Congo supporting a UN mission tried to fly home, however the home base wasn't reset from the factory default, so it tried to make it back to Ireland IIRC.

There could be ways around that issue, such as having the self-destruct capability disarmed when the drone is below a certain altitude. That would indicate the craft is near to landing. It could be an automatic feature or one that is part of the pre-landing checklist procedures at the command center.

Quoting Spacepope (Reply 19):

That being the case, all of this discussion we are having is moot (but nonetheless fun to speculate). I'm sure the geniuses who design, build, and deploy these machines already gave consideration to this issue and, for whatever reason, decided the cons outweigh the pros. Hopefully they considered the fact that these machines would come down in hostile territory on occasion, and have planned for that eventuality.

I double we are hearing what really happened from either the Iranians or the US. In fact the Iranians have claimed to have shot down three other drones and not a single piece of wreakage has ever been shown on their TV. The Soviets made the most of their shootdown of Gary Powers and publicaly displayed the wreckage, so why not now.

But I will say that if this is because a weaknees in the datalink system for fllight controls it does make a serious arguement for maintaining a manned survelience aircraft.

I double we will see SR-71's being reclaimed from museums anytime soon though.
