These drones may not be running on encrypted date links or the encryption may be minimal.
the more encrypted a date string in the longer it takes to crypt-decrypt this slows the control response.
That is a bad idea for aircraft.
Its not hard to override the signal if you have a more powerful transmitter.
these drones are being run from a base near Kabul Afghanistan.a 100 or more miles away
and flying just inside the Afghanistan border.
If the Iranians set up a transmitter just inside there border only a couple miles away from the drone with 10 times higher power and a directional
They could completely over ride the signal from the US transmitter and ether fly the drone across to there side of the border OR jam the signal(this
would not require knowing the encryption)as the drone was headed in the direction of Iran but yet had not crossed the border.
I believe that Iran had technical help from China or Russia. And i believe we will see the evidence in a couple years as they copy the equipment from
What Iran does not have is the data collected by the drone as there is a fail safe that wipes the data storage if they lose the drone.
