Paper Abstract

We present a summary of the status of the Cambridge Optical Aperture Synthesis Telescope, and review developments at the array through the period 2000-2002. Summaries of the astronomical and technical programmes completed, together with an outline of those that are currently in progress are presented. Since our last report two years ago in 2000, there have been significant changes in the context for astronomical interferometry in the UK. We review these developments, and describe our plans for the near and intermediate term at COAST, and with colleagues in Europe at the VLTI and in the USA at the Magdalena Ridge Observatory in New Mexico.
