Significant progress has been made in recent years on the development of gravitational wave (GW) observatories searching for signals from astrophysical sources such as coalescing compact binary systems, stellar collapses and pulsars.

A review of recent science runs from the current generation of ground-based detectors will be discussed, in addition to highlighting the astrophysical results gained thus far.

This will be followed by discussion of the major upgrades to the LIGO (Advanced LIGO ), Virgo (Advanced Virgo), and GEO600 (GEO-HF) instruments now underway which will be completed over the coming years, in addition to the planned new Japanese detector ‘LCGT’. Beyond this, the concept and design of possible future “third generation” gravitational wave detectors, such as the Einstein Telescope (ET), will be discussed.
