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. Many of these Mk.37 directors were modified to a later configuration (available separately) that had a shielded position for the director captain.
