10 U.S. Navy sailors were killed when the destroyer collided with an oil tanker in August 2017.
Some believe a lack of proper training and poor maintenance contributed to the series of naval accidents and this unit will seek to remedy that.
The recent collisions involving the USS John S. McCain and USS Fitzgerald resulted in a combined death toll of 17 U.S. Navy sailors.
U.S. missile destroyer "suddenly" steamed on to a course to cross paths with container ship.
The Japanese vessel was three times the size of the US missile destroyer.
Japanese media said all seven of the sailors who had been reported missing were found dead.
Three U.S. sailors, including the captain, had to be medically evacuated after the collision with a merchant ship three times the size of the Fitzgerald.
