The recent detections of gravitational waves from binary black hole coalescences suggest these sources will be observed in large number by advanced detectors. However, new instruments will be required to detect black holes at redshifts much larger than unity.
In this talk I will focus on proposed third-generation detectors, such as the Einstein Telescope and Cosmic Explorer. These instruments will detect O(10^5) events per year, and access binary black holes up to redshift of ~10. I will provide a quantitative analysis of the capabilities of networks of third-generation interferometers, focusing in particular on compact binaries.
I will also consider heterogeneous networks, accounting for the possible contribution of detectors from the previous generation, such as Voyager.
