Abstract
The Sydney University Stellar Interferometer (SUSI) is a long baseline optical interferometer located at the Paul Wild Observatory in northern New South Wales, some 400 km NNW of Sydney. An extensive observational and development program is in progress. The status of the observational program, data reduction techniques, and recent results are reported. Instrumental developments including the development and installation of new tip-tilt mirrors and the design and implementation of a red beam-combination system that includes a group-delay tracker will be described. Auxiliary instrumentation to provide complementary data for the interpretation of SUSI observations has been installed alongside SUSI and this will be outlined briefly.
