Paper Abstract

The New Worlds Observer (NWO) is a mission concept for the detection and characterization of extra-solar planets. It employs an external starshade and a space telescope. The starshade suppressed the parent star's light making detection of the extra-solar planet possible. This paper formulates system performance based on fundamental systems parameters and explores their interaction.
