I have the drawing set for this. It is a custom unit for GE CAT scanner image convolution.
Ah ok. I just had noticed on the back of the device Floating Point Systems, and a model number - FPS-100 I think. The board for it that is in the cpu chassis is labled "Floating Point Option".
This box surprised me as being the densest amount of circuitry I have ever seen. It's stuffed top to bottom with boards that all touch eachother. I don't think you could find any space to put another chip anywhere inside it.
This certainly explains the huge and large number of cooling fans on the back of the chassis :>
