Paper Abstract

The Characterising Exoplanet Satellite (CHEOPS) (Fig. 1) is a European Space Agency (ESA) mission dedicated to search for transits by means of ultra-high-precision photometry on bright stars already known to host planets [1,2]. One of the most challenging requirements is to reach a 20ppm photometric accuracy over 6 hours, which should allow CHEOPS to detect super-earths transiting very bright stars.
