The SIM Lite mission will undertake several planet surveys. One of them, the Deep Planet Survey, is designed to detect Earth-mass exoplanets in the habitable zones of nearby main sequence stars. A double blind study has been conducted to assess the capability of SIM to detect such small planets in a multi-planet system where several giant planets might be present. One of the tools which helped in deciding if the detected planets were actual was an orbit integrator using the publicly available…
