One of the sign accompanying the IU. It reads.

Instrument Unit (IU)

The IU was constructed in segments of honeycomb material sandwiched between inner and outer skins and looked like a narrow collar or ring that had been slipped partway down the vehicle. Mounted on the inner skin were 16 cold plates, each 76 centimeters square.
