Abstract: The latest results from the commissioning of the SSD with cosmics arepresented in this paper. The hardware status of the detector, the front-endelectronics, cooling, data acquisition and issues related to the on-linemonitoring are shown. In addition, the procedures implemented and followed toaddress the alignment with the rest of the ITS sub-detectors along with bothon-line and off-line calibration strategies are described. Finally, resultsfrom simulations as well as from the reconstruction of cosmic datademonstrating the performance of the detector are presented, proving that theSSD is ready for the forthcoming proton-proton data taking.
