Abstract
The Sydney University Stellar Interferometer (SUSI) is a long-baseline optical interferometer operating at an observatory near Narrabri in Australia. SUSI features a 640 m long North-South array with 11 fixed siderostat stations. New science from the Blue (400-500 nm) and from the recently commissioned Red (500-950 nm) fringe detectors will be presented. Recent technological developments, mainly associated with the new Red detection system, encompassing wavefront correction, fringe encoding, wavelength switching and data analysis strategies, are described.
