The navigation center is where the Quartermaster of the Watch was stationed. The ship's quartermasters were responsible for maintaining and projecting the ship's path of travel, referred to as the ship's track, both when surfaced and submerged. The squarish table in the center of this space was used by the navigation team for laying out their charts and plotting the ships position. Under the table was the auxiliary gyro compass.
