NavG is a part of the AUV Sentry vehicle tracking console that allows the Operations team, ship, and science users to monitor the progress of the vehicle's progress while underway. This user interface is, in general, set up in the Sentry Operations watchstanding station as well as at ship's bridge so that the team and the ship can closely communicate to optimize Sentry navigation by monitoring the same real-time information. Scientists could preview NavG on one of the lab monitors upon request to track the mission progress in part of their strategizing the next science activities.
