The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has a goal of detecting small planets orbiting stars bright enough for mass determination via ground-based radial velocity observations. Here we present estimates of how many exoplanets the TESS mission will detect, physical properties of the detected planets, and the properties of the stars that those planets orbit. This work uses stars drawn from the TESS Input Catalog Candidate Target List and revises yields from prior studies that were based… Expand
Predicted Yield of Transits of Known Radial Velocity Exoplanets from the TESS Primary and Extended Missions
Radial velocity (RV) surveys have detected hundreds of exoplanets through their gravitational interactions with their host stars. Some will be transiting, but most lack sufficient follow-upExpand

TLDR
There is no sharp fall-off in the planet discovery rate in the third year of TESS operations, and the quantity of newly detected sub-Neptune radius planets does not depend strongly on the schedule of pointings. Expand
