  • This paper presents a novel formation design methodology for a miniaturized distributed occulter/telescope (mDOT) in earth orbit. In contrast to large-scale missions such as the New Worlds Observer or Exo-S (NASA), mDOT makes use of microand nano-satellites inertially aligned in earth orbit to reduce mission costs by orders of magnitude. Due to the small telescope aperture, this concept requires greater instrument integration time (or observation duration) in an environment with larger… CONTINUE READING
