Comprehensive Review of Recent Surface Force Incidents 

Adm. Phil Davidson led a Comprehensive Review of surface fleet operations and incidents at sea that have occurred over the past decade with emphasis on 7th Fleet operational employment to inform improvements Navy-wide.

The 33-member review team addressed individual training and professional development, unit level training and operational performance, development and certification of deployed operational and mission standards, deployed operational employment and risk management, material readiness of electronic systems, and practical utility of current navigation equipment and combat systems.

The Comprehensive Review team conducted numerous site visits, document reviews, and interviews. The team received outstanding support from all organizations. Adm. Davidson also received helpful input and insight from a panel of highly qualified experts to ensure the widest possible perspective.
