Paper Abstract

The Space Interferometry Mission (SIM) will perform astrometry to a resolution of a few micro arc seconds. The development of this mission is being led by the California Institute of Technology, JPL for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. A recent trade study was performed to compare two significantly different architectures. This paper will describe the two configurations and contrast some of their differences and similarities.
