Here is the Avation Week & Space Technology article:

February 9, 1976
Page 9, Industry Observer
5th entry on page

"Lockheed is investigating alternative lightweight structural materials for a solar cell-powered remotely
piloted vehicle after the wing failed during severe turbulence tests at Nellis AFB, Nev. (read Groom Lake).
The tests are aimed at developing a high-altitude reconnaissance platform, built by Astro Flight, Inc.,
under subcontract to Lockheed for the Advanced Research
Projects Agency. The one-third scale model has a 32-ft
wingspan. (AW&ST June 23 (1975). p, 9.)"
