Possible Use?
It looks like a cigarette lighter - the type that is found in a car that heats up in the 12v plug, then the coil gets red hot when electricity is applied to light the cigarette.

i know what it is
I work with these. They are intended for military use mainly. They are a type of directional antenna used for detecting where a radar lock is coming from. Four of them are generally used on a vehicle, mainly aircraft. They are placed in each of the four corners. Civilian use could range from simple radar detector antennas to detecting where a source of rf interference in the radar bands are coming from.

"A customer from North Carolina" nailed it.
It's also what inside of the nose of a HARM missile looks like, except bigger.

Dopplar
These would be great for a dopplar system on a vehicle. Hams have used them in search and rescue to locate weak radio signals.
