good morning, please see the attached photos of a 'thing' that appears to be a signalling device. The only data plate is in an arab (?) script - any ideas?

The device has a sighting scope which very slightly magnifies. I imagine that the mirrors are for reflecting the sun from any angle. By depressing the lever on the right hand side, the blinds open. It would seem that this is a modern version of a heliograph - but is it?

Any thoughts?

many thanks, Dave100_9687.jpg100_9688.jpg100_9686.jpg100_9689.jpg
