A sample of about 160 speckle binary stars was observed with the Keck I telescope and itsÉchelle HIRES spectrograph over the years [2003][2004][2005][2006][2007] in an effort to detect substellar and planetary companions to components of binary and multiple star systems. This data set was supplemented with the data obtained at the TNG telescope equipped with the SARGÉchelle spectrograph over the years 2006-2007. The high-resolution (R = 65000 for HIRES and R = 86000 for SARG) and high

Here, we present a summary of this effort, which includes the discovery of new triple star systems and improved orbital solutions of a few known binaries.
