Components in the interior of the instrument compartment.

This component is at the bottom of the left-most vertical row. The label above this subcompartment identifies it as the "Program Device", as does an ID plate clearly mounted on the box's cover.

At upper left is a mechanical, odometer-style counter which indicates 27.7 hours (presumably of operation for the component?). The label under the counter instructs the technician to "↑ Mount in Flight Direction".

The four large electrical connectors at the center are marked in a round-about scheme:

J6701     J6704
J6703     J6702

The ID plate below the electrical connectors is mostly legible and appears to read

Knowing that the Redstone was manufactured by the Chrysler Corporation, I initially got concerned when I read the "Ford Unit No.", but then found out that the Ford Instrument Co. was a division of the Sperry Rand Corporation.
