Translation - "Not shot down". Usually, when an aircraft gets shot down, it's all messed up.

Iran has the capabilities to dectect satelite comes with the help of ESM detection systems. Iran have bought sophisticated ESM systems from the Ukraine (The Kolchuga) in 2004 and built some of their own system as well.

what do you mean NO LOSS OF LIFE ? these things kill many inocent people , they may be nice and safe for the operators but when they blast some house that it is believed to be occupied by a perceived enemy.
all neighbouring homes and property including the occupants are killed and destroyed

They have claimed that that drone has been out of control.
Then it justifies violating sovereign airspace.
But is said that :
“The RQ-170 has a RTB [Return to Base] feature,” Thompson said. “In the event of a loss of the command link, the aircraft will automatically return to its point of origin and land itself.”
Then it should have came back to base after malfunctioning but it didn't.
At last goof for Iran :
1. A high-tech drone
2. Much information will be taken out of that device.
3. US has violated Iran' s airspace , Iran took the drone down , intact.

I think they shot it down, then created this fabrication to say they captured it.

actual drone's crash site, the drone shown was not the Sentinel. U.S. officials previously confirmed that an RQ-170 did, in fact, crash land somewhere in Iran
