  • Comandante del Corpo delle Guardie della Rivoluzione Iraniana spiega l’abbattimento del drone USA
    [09.12.2011] trad. di Levred per GilGuySparks

Il Comandante del Corpo delle Guardie della Rivoluzione Islamica (IRGC) delle Forze Aerospaziali, il generale di brigata Amir Ali Hajizadeh, giovedì sera è apparso in un servizio televisivo per spiegare come le forze iraniane abbiano abbattuto il drone spia altamente avanzato degli Stati Uniti in grado di eludere i radar, la scorsa settimana.“Recentemente, la nostra intelligence ha raccolto e un preciso monitoraggio elettronico ha rivelato che questo aeromobile era destinato a infiltrarsi nello spazio aereo del nostro paese per missioni di spionaggio”, ha detto il generale, e ha aggiunto: “Dopo che è entrato nelle zone orientali del paese, questo velivolo è caduto nella trappola delle nostre forze armate ed è stato abbattuto in Iran con un danno minimo”.
“La larghezza dell’ala del drone RQ-170 Sentinel è di circa 26 metri con una lunghezza di 4,5 metri e un’altezza di 1,84 metri.”
“Il drone è dotato di sistemi di sorveglianza altamente avanzati, di raccolta dati, di comunicazione elettronica e sistemi radar,” ha continuato.

“Per quanto riguarda la sua piattaforma e il rivestimento sono interessanti, questo tipo di aereo è stato progettato per eludere i sistemi radar e dal punto di vista della tecnologia è tra i più recenti tipi di velivoli avanzati utilizzati dagli Stati Uniti,” ha aggiunto il comandante dell’IRGC.

“La tecnologia utilizzata in questo aereo era già stata utilizzata nei B2 e negli aerei F35,” ha detto Hajizadeh, e ha aggiunto: “Questo aereo è controllato e guidato attraverso collegamento via satellite e dalle stazioni a terra in Afghanistan e negli Stati Uniti”.

“Gli esperti militari sono ben consapevoli di quanto sia preziosa l’informazione tecnologica di questo drone”, ha ribadito.

L’aereo di sorveglianza senza pilota perso dagli Stati Uniti in Iran è un aereo stealth utilizzato per le missioni segrete della CIA, i funzionari degli Stati Uniti lo hanno ammesso all’inizio di questa settimana.

L’aereo è tra le piattaforme di sorveglianza altamente sensibili della flotta della CIA, che sono state progettate e hanno una forma particolare per eludere le difese nemiche.

La missione del drone abbattuto rimane poco chiara. L’RQ-170 è stato utilizzato dalla CIA per missioni altamente sensibili nello spazio aereo di altre nazioni, compresi i mesi di sorveglianza del compound in Pakistan in cui Osama bin Laden si nascondeva prima di essere ucciso in un raid a maggio dalle forze speciali.

Attuali ed ex funzionari della difesa Usa hanno detto anche che l’esercito americano non ha la possibilità di utilizzare un aereo stealth così altamente sofisticato, come in relazione non è nella sua disponibilità, e che è pilotato solo dalla CIA.

L’Iran ha annunciato domenica che le sue forze di difesa hanno abbattuto l’aereo attraverso un attacco informatico sofisticato.

Il drone è la prima perdita del genere da parte degli Stati Uniti.

L’RQ-170 ha rivestimenti speciali e una forma a pipistrello progettato per aiutarlo penetrare le difese aeree di altre nazioni stando inosservato. L’esistenza del velivolo, che è fatto da Lockheed Martin, è nota dal 2009, quando un modello è stato fotografato al principale campo d’aviazione Usa a Kandahar, in Afghanistan.

IRGC commander explains downing of US stealth drone

Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Forces Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh Thursday evening appeared in a TV report to explain how Iranian forces downed the United States’ highly advanced radar-evading spy drone last week.

“Recently, our collected intelligence and precise electronic monitoring revealed that this aircraft intended to infiltrate our country’s airspace for spying missions,” the General said, and added, “After it entered the Eastern parts of the country, this aircraft fell into the trap of our armed forces and was downed in Iran with minimum damage.”

“The wing-to-wing width of the RQ-170 Sentinel drone is around 26 meters with a length of 4.5 meters and height of 1.84 meters.”

“The drone is equipped with highly advanced surveillance, data gathering, electronic communication and radar systems,” he continued.

“As far as its platform and coating are concerned, this kind of plane has been designed to evade radar systems and from the view point of technology it is amongst the most recent types of advanced aircraft used by the US,” the IRGC commander added.

“The technology used in this aircraft had already been used in B2 and F35 planes,” Hajizadeh said, and added, “This aircraft is controlled and guided through satellite link and land stations in Afghanistan and the United States.”

“Military experts are well aware how precious the technological information of this drone is,” he reiterated.

The unmanned surveillance plane lost by the United States in Iran was a stealth aircraft being used for secret missions by the CIA, US officials admitted earlier this week.

The aircraft is among the highly sensitive surveillance platform in the CIA’s fleet that was shaped and designed to evade enemy defenses.

The mission of the downed drone remains unclear. The RQ-170 has been used by the CIA for highly sensitive missions into other nations’ airspace, including months of surveillance of the compound in Pakistan in which Osama bin Laden was hiding before he was killed in a May raid by Special Operations forces.

Current and former US defense officials said even the US military cannot use such a highly sophisticated stealth aircraft as it is in relatively short supply and is only flown by the CIA.

Iran announced on Sunday that its defense forces downed the aircraft through a sophisticated cyberattack.

The drone is the first such loss by the US.

The RQ-170 has special coatings and a batwing shape designed to help it penetrate other nations’ air defenses undetected. The existence of the aircraft, which is made by Lockheed Martin, has been known since 2009, when a model was photographed at the main US airfield in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

  • El Avión capturado por Irán fue obligado a aterrizar mediante un Ciber Ataque

la proxima guerra avion no tripulado capturado iran eeuu

El informe de la agencia de noticias de la inteligencia israelí, Debka, confirma que Irán ha derribado un avión no tripulado de EE.UU. “sin daños”. “Su estado casi perfecto confirma la afirmación de Teherán de que el avión no tripulado fue derribado por un ciber ataque“.

El avión no fue derribado, como se informó anteriormente. Fue derribado por un ciber ataque de Irán con el que inutilizaron su sistema de comunicaciones.

Debka declara a este respecto que tanto la inteligencia israelí como la de EEUU están “consternados” por estos acontecimientos, apuntando a posibles debilidades de comando y control.” El estado del avión perdido refuta el argumento de los militares de EE.UU. de que los sistemas del avión Sentinel sufrieron una avería. Si esto hubiera sucedido, se habría estrellado, o bien habría sido destruido o dañado.”

“Irán exhibió el secreto y sigiloso avión no tripulado RQ-170 Sentinel después de ser capturado el domingo 4 de diciembre. Su condición casi perfecta confirmó la afirmación de Teherán de que el avión fue derribado por un ciber ataque, lo que significa que no fue derribado, sino atrapado en buen estado mediante una emboscada de ciber guerra. Esto es un desastre importante para la tecnología de sigilo que los EE.UU. utilizan en sus aviones de guerra y en la tecnología de aviones teledirigidos desarrollada por los EE.UU. e Israel”.

La condición intacta del RQ-170 obliga a los EE.UU. e Israel a hacer grandes cambios en los planes para un potencial ataque contra el programa nuclear de Irán.

La decisión del gobierno de Obama después de un debate interno de no enviar comandos de EE.UU. o  unidades de aire a Irán para recuperar o destruir el avión secreto no tripulado RQ-170 stealth que cayó en manos de Irán ha fortalecido las manos de la facción israelí, que sostiene la opción de atacar las instalaciones nucleares de Irán sin esperar a los estadounidenses para hacer su movimiento.

Altos funcionarios israelíes diplomáticos y de seguridad que siguieron el debate en Washington llegaron a la conclusión de que, al no actuar, la administración ha dejado a Irán no sólo con los secretos de la capa invisible del Sentinel, sus sensores y cámaras, sino también con los datos almacenados en su ordenador sobre los objetivos marcados por los EE.UU. y / o Israel para el ataque.

Fuentes militares de DEBKAfile dicen que este conocimiento obliga a los EE.UU. e Israel a revisar sus planes de ataque para abortar el programa nuclear iraní. Al igual que todos los sistemas de armas clandestinas, el RQ-170 tenía un mecanismo de autodestrucción para evitar que sus secretos cayeran en manos del enemigo en caso de un accidente o de ser capturado. Esto no sucedió. Teherán fue capaz de reclamar el avión de espionaje ligeramente dañado cuando lo derribaron. El portavoz de la OTAN afirmó haber perdido el control del vehículo aéreo no tripulado de EE.UU. y que se perdió, una ocurrencia común para estos aviones no tripulados.

Los enigmas que rodean su captura siguen creciendo. ¿Cómo supieron los iraníes que el avión no tripulado había entrado en su espacio aéreo? ¿Cómo fue arrastrado a la tierra? Por encima de todo, ¿por qué el mecanismo de autodestrucción de la nave que está programado para activarse de forma automática no funcionó? Y si no funcionó bien, ¿por qué no se activó por control remoto?

El jueves 8 de diciembre, The New York Times y el Wall Street Journal informaron que desde el domingo 4 de diciembre, cuando Teherán anunció la captura del avión no tripulado stealth, el gobierno de Obama sopesó el envío de comandos de fuerzas especiales a Irán desde bases en Afganistán para regresar el avión derribado a Afganistán o volarlo por los aires para destruir los sistemas secretos casi intactos – o bien por una operación interna o por un ataque aéreo.

Funcionarios iraníes dijeron que el avión no tripulado fue detectado cerca de la ciudad iraní de Kashmar, a 200 kilómetros de la frontera con Afganistán y, presumiblemente, se trasladó a una base militar o aérea en el interior del país. El New York Times reveló que las fuerzas especiales habrían usado “agentes aliados dentro de Irán” para rastrear y conseguir el avión, la primera vez que Washington ha admitido que cuenta con el apoyo de “agentes aliados” que operan clandestinamente en Irán.

Al final, el periódico citó a un funcionario de EE.UU. mientras explicó que la opción de atacar fue descartada “debido al potencial de convertirse en un incidente mayor.” Si un equipo de asalto entraba en el país, los EE.UU. “podrían ser acusados de un acto de guerra” por parte de Teherán. La discusión interna de la administración Obama sobre cómo manejar la pérdida del tan valioso avión no tripulado de reconocimiento fue seguida con tensión desde Jerusalén.

La decisión que se tomó en contra de montar una misión para recuperar o destruir el Sentinel fue percibida en Israel como un síntoma de una decisión más amplia para cancelar la guerra encubierta que se ha estado llevando a cabo desde hace algunos meses en contra de la capacidad de Irán para fabricar una bomba nuclear – por lo menos hasta que el daño causado por el incidente del RQ-170 tenga una evaluación completa. Un alto funcionario de seguridad israelí dijo lo siguiente: “Todo lo que ha ocurrido alrededor del RQ-170 muestra que cuando se trata de Irán y su programa nuclear, el gobierno de Obama e Israel tienen diferentes objetivos. Sobre este tema, cada país tiene que seguir su propio camino.”

  • Israeli Intelligence Report: US Drone downed by Iran Cyber Attack


Global Research, December 8, 2011

The Israeli intelligence news outlet Debka report confirms that Iran has downed a US drone “undamaged”.  “Its almost perfect condition confirmed Tehran’s claim that the UAV was downed by a cyber attack”.

The drone was not shot down, as previously reported. It was brought down through an Iranian cyber attack which disabled its communications system.

Debka states in this regard that both US and Israeli intelligence are “shocked” by these developments, suggesting possible Command and Control weakenesses. “The state of the lost UAV refutes the US military contention that the Sentinel’s systems malfunctioned. If this had happened, it would have crashed and either been wrecked or damaged.”:

“Iran exhibited the top-secret US stealth drone RQ-170 Sentinel captured on Sunday, Dec. 4. Its almost perfect condition confirmed Tehran’s claim that the UAV was downed by a cyber attack, meaning it was not shot down but brought in undamaged by an electronic warfare ambush. This is a major debacle for the stealth technology the US uses in its warplanes and the drone technology developed by the US and Israel.”

The condition of the RQ-170 intact obliges the US and Israel to make major changes in plans for a potential strike against Iran’s nuclear program.

The Obama administration’s decision after internal debate not to send US commando or air units into Iran to retrieve or destroy the secret RQ-170 stealth drone which fell into Iranian hands has strengthened the hands of the Israeli faction which argues the case for striking Iran’s nuclear installations without waiting for the Americans to make their move.

Senior Israeli diplomatic and security officials who followed the discussion in Washington concluded that, by failing to act, the administration has left Iran not only with the secrets of the Sentinel’s stealth coating, its sensors and cameras, but also with the data stored in its computer cells on targets marked out by the US and/or Israeli for attack.

debkafile’s military sources say that this knowledge compels the US and Israel to revise their plans of attack for aborting the Iranian nuclear program. Like every clandestine weapons system, the RQ-170 had a self-destruct mechanism to prevent its secrets spilling out to the enemy in the event of a crash or capture. This did not happen. Tehran was able to claim the spy drone was only slightly damaged when they downed it. The NATO spokesman claimed control was lost of the US UAV and it went missing, a common occurrence for these unmanned aircraft. The enigmas surrounding its capture continue to pile up. How did Iran know the drone had entered its airspace? How was it caused to land? Most of all, why did the craft’s self-destruct mechanism which is programmed to activate automatically fail to work? And if it malfunctioned, why was it not activated by remote control?

Thursday, Dec. 8, The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal reported that from Sunday, Dec. 4, when Tehran announced the stealth drone’s capture, the Obama administration weighed sending special commando forces into Iran from bases in Afghanistan to bring the downed aircraft back to Afghanistan or blow it up to destroy the almost intact secret systems – either by a sneak operation or by an air strike.

Iranian officials said the drone was detected near the Iranian town of Kashmar, 200 kilometers from the Afghan border and presumably moved to a military or air base inside the country. The NYT disclosed that the special force would have used “allied agents inside Iran” to hunt down the missing aircraft, the first time Washington has admitted to support from “allied agents” operating covertly in Iran.

In the end, the paper quoted a US official as explaining that the attack option was ruled out “because of the potential it could become a larger incident.” If an assault team entered the country, the US “could be accused of an act of war” by Tehran. The Obama administration’s internal discussion on how to handle the loss of the high-value reconnaissance drone was followed tensely in Jerusalem. The decision it took against mounting a mission to recover or destroy the top-secret Sentinel was perceived in Israel as symptomatic of a wider decision to call off the covert war America has been conducting for some months against Iran’s drive for a nuclear bomb – at least until the damage caused by RQ-170 incident is fully assessed. A senior Israeli security official had this to say: “Everything that’s happened around the RQ-170 shows that when it comes to Iran and its nuclear program, the Obama administration and Israel have different objectives. On this issue, each country needs to go its own way.” (For further details see Debka, December 8, 2011)
