This is the high-angle guns' director. The director and its firing dish together locate a target and find its best-fit firing angle. ...somewhat. This one is obsolete, and its primary function is already built-in on battleships, cruisers, etc.

Enables Anti-Air Cut-in when equipped along with a high-angle mount (main or secondary) (e.g 12.7cm Twin High-angle Mount) or Type 3 Shell. Cut-in rate increases when an Air Radar is also equipped. Effectiveness of Anti-Air Cut-in varies depending on equipment setup and the ship performing it.
While not directly referenced by name, the formal definition of the director is an fire-control system (FCS) (火器管制装置). Slightly different from radar in that the FCS/director finds a possible point in which the bullet will arrive at. As demonstrated on wikiwiki:
> Radar: "The enemy is over here!~ Here is contact!~"
> FCS: "Um, the enemy has exposed themselves, so I think this shot angle is good!~"
