The technical status of the Navy Prototype Optical Interferometer (NPOI) since the last SPIE meeting is summarized along with the current science programs. The instrument is operated in an automatic observational mode, obtaining over 10,000 stellar observations in the period, June 2004 through March 2006. The scientific program has been directed at astrometry, TPF candidate stars, binary stars and other interesting targets such as Be stars. A significant database of NPOI observations obtained in 1997-2004 is being analyzed for binaries and single stars such as rapid rotating stars: Altair and Vega.
