A summary of the accident is that the USS John McCain was in high-traffic waters when they believed they lost control of steering the ship. Despite attempts to slow or maneuver, it was hit by another large vessel. The bodies of 10 sailors were eventually recovered and five others suffered injury.
Today marks the final report on the accident released by the Navy. After reading it, it seems to me the report blames the crew. Here are some quotes from the offical Naval report: In the Navy, the responsibility of the Commanding Officer for his or her ship is absolute.
Many of the decisions made that led to this incident were the result of poor judgment and decision making of the Commanding Officer. That said, no single person bears full responsibility for this incident.
The crew was unprepared for the situation in which they found themselves through a lack of preparation, ineffective command and control and deficiencies in training and preparations for navigation.
Ars Technica called my attention to an important but not specifically called out reason for the accident: This control was transferred using a computer interface. That interface did not give sufficient information about its current state or feedback about what station controlled what functions of the ship.
This made the crew think they had lost steering control when actually that control had just been moved to another location. Steering was never physically lost.
Rather, it had been shifted to a different control station and watchstanders failed to recognize this configuration.
Complicating this, the steering control transfer to the Lee Helm caused the rudder to go amidships centerline. Overall I was surprised at the tone of this report regarding crew performance.
Fitts and Jones were the start of the human factors field inwhen they insisted that the design of the cockpit created accident-prone situations. This ushered in a new era, one where we try to improve the systems people must use as well as their training and decision making. I would be very interested to see how it appears in action.
