We review some of the recent CCD detector development projects now in progress at KPNO. An overview is given of our CCD controller systems, which are designed to accept a wide variety of CCD detectors with a minimum amount of modification. The performance characteristics of two currently operational CCD detector systems are summarized -- the cryogenic camera system and the prime-focus CCD system. Finally we give a progress report of the development work now under way in evaluating the performance of two Fairchild CCD-221 detectors.
