19 September 2017 HabEx yield modeling with for systems engineering (Conference Presentation)
Author Affiliations +
We present yield modeling results for the HabEx concept study using EXOSIMS. EXOSIMS (Exoplanet Open-Source Imaging Mission Simulator) provides a parametric estimate of science yield of mission concepts using contrast curves from physics-based diffraction model codes and Monte Carlo simulations of design reference missions using realistic observing constraints. Two baseline architecture configurations and two extended configurations are compared. We compare a configuration with a coronagraph to a configuration with a starshade for both detection and spectral characterization. The input parameters, including astrophysical assumptions, are detailed. We show sensitivity to key design parameters around design space local to the point designs. The yield results provide an analysis of the relative performance of telescope and instrument design that enable system engineering decisions.
