Paper 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 400km NNW of Sydney. SUSI has been designed to measure the angular sizes of stars of essentially all spectral types and luminosity classes and to measure the angular separations of close binary stars. In addition to the science programs planned for SUSI, the technical features of the instrument dictated by these programs are discussed. The current status of the instrument and science programs, and the plans for further development of the instrument are described.
