Abstract
This paper is an overview of the progress in the development of a formation flying architecture concept for NASA's Terrestrial Planet Finder Interferometer project. Highlights from both system design studies and technology development efforts are briefly discussed and are supported by other papers in this conference providing greater detail. Described are the major trades, analyses, and technology experiments completed. Near term plans are also described. This paper covers progress since June 2004 and serves as an update to a paper presented at that month's SPIE conference, "Astronomical Telescopes and Instrumentation", held in Glasgow, Scotland.
