In this white paper report, we present an assessment of the current capabilities and the future potential of the precise radial velocity (PRV) method to advance the NASA goal to “search for planetary bodies and Earth-like planets in orbit around other stars.” (U.S. National Space Policy, June 28, 2010). PRVs complement other exoplanet detection methods, for example offering a direct path to obtaining the bulk density and thus the structure and composition of transiting exoplanets.
