According to the Japanese news report on August 1st, the US Air Force said the US side disrupted the experiment and detonated the missile because it found "abnormal" during the test of the "militia III" intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in July 31st.
The militia III intercontinental ballistic missile was launched at 4:42 a.m. (USA time) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California in July 31st and then safely detonated over the Pacific.
The US authorities say a special investigation team has been set up to investigate the cause of the anomaly. The United States Air Force "Global Strike Command" issued a statement saying: many factors related to the operating platform itself and the experimental device are likely to cause this anomaly. To determine the cause of the anomaly, it must be carefully analyzed. The data collected from the test will help to find and correct problems so as to maintain the reliability and accuracy of "militia III".
Vandenberg air force base will regularly test the "militia" intercontinental ballistic missile. Many launch plans have been started a few years ago. In the decades since the end of the cold war, many "ballistic force III" ballistic missiles are still deployed throughout the country.
