It had to do with crossing the international dateline, the software was not configured for that, a simple overlook on the part of the engineers. All
it took was a little modification to the algorithm, I believe all twelve are now in Kadena. Also, I don't think the computer "crashed", they did
make it back to Hawaii, it's just that the NAVSAT system didn't work right.
Anyway, this is a new system it's not yet fully matured, modification are being made all the time, models coming off the line have alterations from
all the things learned. That's why we do peacetime deployments and exercises so that when it counts all the bugs have been worked out.
