Or maybe some bits out of a ground-based radar or anti-aircraft missile
system? I don't really know much about military equipment... it looks to me
like it came out of some kind of ground-based equipment, rather than a ship
or an aircraft.
If I were you I'd probably open up the "CONTROL COMPUTER" and see what was
in there :O It doesn't look like any of the pictures I've ever seen of the
Rolm militarized DG-compatible systems. It might just be a bunch of analog

The ATR-chassis ROLM machines used a radically different board form factor
than anything produced by DG; while the ROLM 16xx series machines
implemented a superset of the Nova instruction set they were entirely
designed in-house and aside from parts of the ISA and the signaling on the
NovaBus had nothing in common with the DG machines.
Given the markings on the boxes in the photos I?d hazard those are bits of
a rate-based autopilot or possibly an INS system.
