After posting what was in Ron Baalke's document, on the other 
hand, on Gunter's Space Page:

  http://www.rz.uni-frankfurt.de/~gkrebs/space/space.html

on STS-16 (41-D, or Discovery F1), he gives an "Orbus 7S" with 
"Syncom-4 2" (a.k.a. Leasat 2), and it seems Orbus is a type of 
IUS:

There's a photo of an IUS (IUS-1, IUS-2, or both?) on these 
pages:

  http://solar.rtd.utk.edu/~mwade/stages/ius2.htm

Maybe both sources are correct...?
