OK, I know what it is, but only because I cheated -- did a google search for the image and it identified it very nicely.

One guess so far that was partially correct, I thought this one would have more responses. :)

Still only one close guess so two hints as OzEclipse as come that close at least.
1. It is part of a computer system
2. Though the military probably used it, it was not originally designed for them.

Member 515bonner has guessed it!
It is a module from the Saturn V rocket navigation system, check out the link below (scroll down the page a bit)
