CHARA and VLTI continue to the be the currently most productive interferometers in the world for the measurements of stellar diameters, with the Naval Precision Interferometer (NPOI) contributing to the measurements of diameters of larger-diameter, brighter stars. NPOI will undergo substantial upgrades to its infrastructure in the next few years and thus open up parameter space currently unavailable to other interferometers. Furthermore, upgrades to CHARA, in particular the installation of an adaptive optics system, in the near future will push CHARA’s limits in both sensitivity and resolution to higher levels.
