As you have spotted the NSC 6650 covers Optical Instruments, Test Equipment

 

The Domestic Management Code that precedes the NSN is V7 & that is Test Equipment specially designed for Fire Control Equipments & Instruments. So at a guess it might be to do with testing Flash Spotting Instruments in artillery location?

Yes Flash Spotting Instruments was just a guess, but a guess can be a good trigger for people to be ready to say it is wrong & then we get to find out what it really is. :-D

 

There are two more avenues for me to explore.

 

EMER INSTRUMENTS although it may have migrated to EMER TEST & MEASUREMENT when that series was created. If I have nothing in there I'll look through the detailed indexes of A 001 respectively.

It won't be Flash Spotting because it's dated 1988 and Flash Spotting was long gone by then. :-D

 

Scaled in 'Mils", and with filters and "Day" lamps... alignment unit for one of the tank gunsights?

 

It's black, and AC mains powered so presumably workshops kit.

Well that's Interesting I guess the next thing to work out is what I am going to do with It

As I am guessing there are not to many people in the world with this at the top of there wanted list. :-):-)
