The Catalina Sky Survey for NEOs has completed its upgrade program and now consists of the 0.7-m Catalina Schmidt (CSS), the 0.5-m Uppsala Schmidt at Siding Spring Observatory in Australia (SSS), the 1.5-m Mt. Lemmon reflector (MLS), and the 1-m Siding Spring reflector. The survey capabilities of these facilities and the physical characterization and follow up capability of the MSL and Siding Spring 1-m reflector are described. Survey statistics for each site are compared.

This work is supported by the NASA NEOO Program.
