The forward visual triangulation site was the name given to any of several large viewports found aboard Imperial[1] and Chiss warships.[2]

On Imperial ships, this room was used primarily to perform line-of-sight weaponry targeting in circumstances where the ship's main sensors were knocked off-line.[1] On Chiss ships, Chiss warriors were placed in each viewport during a battle in order to track enemy vessels and coordinate the firing of weaponry during combat. The efforts of these Chiss warriors augmented the ship's existing sensor systems, and sometimes provided a more reliable description of a battle.[3]

In 19 ABY, Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade avoided the bustle of the signing ceremony for the Pellaeon–Gavrisom Treaty by sharing a cup of hot chocolate in the Imperial Star Destroyer Chimaera's forward visual triangulation site.[1]
