The Exoplanet Imaging Performance Study is a community-based competitive investigation of the ability of future space-based direct imaging missions to detect exoplanets and measure their orbits using simulated data that is based on current models of multi-planet systems, including exozodiacal light, with the expected imaging capabilities of internal and external coronagraphs, including the effects of diffraction, scattering, and other realistic artifacts, and with and without pre-knowledge of a system from a potential astrometric mission.
