Iran copying US drone

The Iranians are exaggerating. While they may be able to glean some useful information from the downed drone, the chances are very low that they will be able to replicate the technology in any practical way. The functional ability of these drones reside on highly complex navigation guidance and network capabilities. The Iranian military lacks the technology, resources and understanding to be able to replicate this technology.
 What Iran does have the ability to do is to attract the attention of the world. Iran's announcement was designed to embarrass the US in the eyes of the world. In this limited regard the Iranians may have some success.
