The US Navy Mark 37 Director was used to control the fire of the 5”/38 caliber dual purpose batteries against both aircraft and surface targets, to direct the fire of starshells for the illumination of surface targets and to position the searchlights.  This early "Square-back" Mk.37 director featured five observation hatches and three telescope port covers.  These directors were commonly installed on many classes of US Navy and US Coast Guard ships during World War II.
