Paper Abstract

Apart from a brief Cassegrain run in the summer of 2011, UKIRT has been operated in WFCAM-only mode since January 2009 and remotely from Hilo since December 2010. UKIRT operations are now in the process of being handed over to the University of Arizona who are interested in recommissioning at least some of the Cassegrain instruments. While at the time of this writing the work is mostly still in the planning stage it is actively being thought about, and some of the infrastructure is being put (back) into place.
