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)
