The instrumental status of the Navy Prototype Optical Interferometer (NPOI) since the last SPIE meeting in 2006 is summarized, along with the results of the current science programs. The commissioning of new stations and plans for greatly increased telescope apertures are discussed, along with other instrumentation upgrades. Recent results in the areas of wide-angle astrometry, binary stars, physical modeling of the circumstellar disks of early-type stars, improvements in coherent averaging, and phase-reference imaging are also reviewed.
