Dome A, the summit of the Antarctic plateau, is expected to have even better atmospheric conditions for ground-based astronomy than Dome C. Instruments to evaluate and exploit Dome A's astronomical potential must operate within logistical constraints, which are currently very stringent. Instrumentation now at Dome A exemplifies the techniques and solutions required by this environment. Future instrumentation and infrastructure will allow the qualities of the site to be exploited much more fully.
