Looked to see what I had on Prospero from the previous attempts to hear it.
This might be of interest. I only have this fragment, not the entire paper, or 
section 4.4  more's the pity.

Abstract : The X3 satellite, the first technological spacecraft in the British 
National Space Programme, is scheduled to be launched on a Black Arrow vehicle 
in late 1971. The spacecraft carries experiments to investigate performance of 
solar cells, characteristics of thermal surfaces, micrometeoroid flux and 
performance in orbit of a hybrid electronics package: section 4.4 gives details. 
In addition newly developed data, telemetry, telecommand and power system will 
be tested in orbit. The micrometeoroid flux experiment has been contributed by 
the University of Birmingham, England. (Author)
