Table 2.

Number of detectable DWDs hosted in Milky Way satellites for nominal (4 yr) and extended (10 yr) mission duration derived using our fiducial exponentially declining SFH.

Name d (kpc) M(×106M) 4 yr 10 yr
LMC 51 1500 70 150
SMC 64 460 15 30
Sagittarius 26 21 3 9
Fornax 147 20 0.1 0.3
Sculptor 86 2.3 0.04 0.1

Notes. Results using more realistic star formation models tuned for each satellite are reported in the text. Stellar masses and distances of satellites are adopted from McConnachie (2012).
