Iran has completed reverse-engineering of the captured US spy drone and has started building its own copy, Iranian media reports.
The Revolutionary Guard is yet to decode parts of the software the Sentinel aircraft uses, General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, who heads the force’s aerospace division, said on Sunday.
“The Americans should be aware to what extent we have infiltrated the plane,” Iranian Fars news agency quoted the general as saying. “Our experts have a full understanding of its components and programs.”
The Pentagon stated that the drone’s security will prevent Iranian engineers from cracking its technology.
