The solar and space physics community has recently completed its second decadal survey under the auspices of the National Research Council. An integrated strategy for ground and space based studies of the Sun and space physics has been recommended, with specific recommendations made regarding new instrumentation, programs, and facilities. The ground based component of these recommendations is briefly reviewed here: the Advanced Technology Solar Telescope (ATST), the Frequency Agile Solar Radiotelescope (FASR), and the Coronal Solar Magnetism Observatory (COSMO). Although not considered as part of the decadal portfolio, but of which the community should nevertheless be aware, are the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and the Jansky Very Large Array (VLA). Several additional instruments are briefly mentioned as pathfinders for those instruments recommended by the decadal survey, including the Coronal Multichannel Polarimeter (CoMP) and the Expanded Owens Valley Solar Array (EOVSA). The planned instruments discussed offer uniquely powerful observations of emissions that originate from the photosphere to well out into the solar wind. As such, they provide observations that are highly complementary to space based missions such as Solar Probe Plus and Solar Orbiter. The status and science goals of the recommended instruments are briefly reviewed.
