REPORTS FROM MARITIME FORCES AND COMMERCIAL MARITIME INTERESTS INDICATE CONCERN WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR LOCALIZED DISRUPTION TO SHIPPING IN CONJUNCTION WITH FUTURE IRANIAN NAVAL EXERCISES. DURING PREVIOUS EXERCISES IRANIAN MARITIME FORCES CONDUCTED BOARDINGS AND INSPECTIONS OF MERCHANT SHIPS, INCLUDING THOSE FLAGGED TO EUROPEAN NATIONS. THE POSSIBILITY EXISTS THAT IRAN WILL ATTEMPT TO CONDUCT BOARDINGS AND INSPECTIONS DURING EXERCISES BETWEEN DECEMBER 2011 AND MARCH 2012. THE MOST LIKELY LOCATION FOR THIS ACTIVITY WOULD BE IN THE VICINITY OF THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ, PARTICULARLY IN AREAS CLOSER TO IRANIAN TERRITORIAL WATERS.

Old thread resurrection shuffle.....
First they said it hadn't happened
Then they said it was faked
Then they said it couldn't be done
Then some good old boys in Austin ,Tx went and just did it.....

Well, it does matter if it's held together with solder and duct tape (prefer black nasty myself). BDR is just that. BDR. A quick fix and off you go but don't whine if you break down 5 miles down the road.
The one time you need kit to work as described means you need a more permanent solution...therefore a bit more than solder, duct tape (still prefer black nasty), chewing gum and/or string.You know you're out of the Army when your bergan is going moldy in the loft. Bugger.

Hey - guess what - the reason we have civvy GPS is that we piggyback signals originally designed for the military - civvy kit just can't decrypt the last couple of digits to limit its accuracy. If this group effectively spoof GPS data, the odds are it will work on military systems. Note that they didn't hack the secure control downlink. I guess this confirms how Iran did it.
This does raise a serious question tho - for the last few years everyone has been crowing "manned flight is dead".
They did the same in the sixties when remote controlled missiles were seen as the be all and end al of military aviation for a while.
Only last week BAe announced their latest effort - BBC News - Trial flights of 'unmanned' aircraft begin in UK skies (Was Nimrod scrapped for that?)
Now, suddenly, one massive foundation of UAV ops has been shown to be vulnerable.
