A malfunctioning launch control center for a portion of the US nuclear missiles remained offline for hours as investigations continued into a recent computer problem that disrupted communications with more than 10 percent of America's land-based nuclear missiles.
As for the cause, the computer hardware problem and the neglect of duties appear very similar to problems in the late 1990s at the two other Air Force bases that control America's intercontinental ballistic missile forces: Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota and Malstrom Air Force Base in Montana. The circumstances of those incidents were much like what happened this time at the Warren base.
