English term or phrase: watchkeeper
Sell Dictionary's does not seem to be appropriate. It is a document on warships and here is the context: "Use of digital computer and simulation technology for on-board embedded training of watchkeepers." Thanks a lot!

A definição 11 de "guarda" no Aurélio é a seguinte:

11. Homem encarregado de vigiar ou guardar alguma coisa; vigia, vigiador, sentinela.
E a no. 4 também é sentinela.

Que tal?
