We will present the results of our quantitative empirical analysis of the sensitivity of the three BRITE-Constellation satellites UniBRITE, BRITE-Austria and BRITE-Toronto using low-amplitude Be stars. [Note to the organizers: if possible, this talk would be given remotely by Stefan Goessl; if not Konstanze Zwintz will take over.]

Mode of presentation need to be confirmed by the SOC
