Abstract
The CHARA array is an optical and IR imaging array of seven 1-m aperture telescopes with a Y-shaped configuration contained within a 400-m diameter circle. The facility will be capable of submilliarcsecond imaging and will be devoted to a broad program of science aimed at fundamental stellar astrophysics in the visible and the astrophysics of young stellar objects in the infrared spectral regions. The concept for the array has been carried through Phase A feasibility and Phase B preliminary design stages with funding provided by the National Science Foundation. This paper will provide a progress report on the status of the project.
