Abstract

We use our automated Design Reference Mission construction framework to evaluate the performance of multiple direct exoplanet imager mission concepts on a variety of metrics including: total number of planetary detections, number of unique planets found, number of target stars observed and number of successful spectral characterizations. We evaluate designs of self-contained coronagraphs and co-orbiting occulters. Performance is evaluated on simulated universes with differing frequencies of planets and varying expected occurrence rates of different planet types.
