Abstract

The case for space-based telescopic direct imaging in reflected light to spectroscopically characterize planets around Sun-like stars is well established. A starshade as an external occulter has been shown to allow this capability. We present a novel concept for a cost-effective in-space assembled starshade to enable direct imaging spectroscopy.
