They hacked into the control signals and brought the UAV in for a landing, apparently. Probably overrode some commands that made it imperative that the UAV land itself. They are autonomous for the most part and are programmed before the mission as to route, destination and altitude,etc. Bombing and live fire is carried out by the operators back in their bunkers in Arizona. The captured UAV is in pristine shape and likely is being analyzed by the Iranians.Expect copies in the next few years and limited deployment. BTW-the bandwidth required to operate these things is very large and limits operations to some extent as the satellite feeds to the UAVs (plus some ground-based transmissions in the cases of limited range border security drones) is strained. Signal is channeled through ground-based transmitter/receivers, satellites, loitering aircraft in friendly territory and benign drones in safe territory. Recent releases by the USAF/USN/US Army indicate they need more satellite comm to control their UAVs. One current UAV utilizes half the bandwidth (approx. 500Gbs) of the total bandwidth employed by the US Armed forces during Desert Storm in one day. UAVs are not flown un-neccesarily and like the limited amount of B-2 (19) and the pretty much grounded F-117As precludes sightings of same as possible culprits for UFO reports. Lots of Chinese lanterns however. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
