The AGILE gamma-ray mission is in its Phase C-D. The Engineering model of the Payload has been built and tested, and the construction of the flight model has started. We present here the status of the SuperAGILE experiment, the 15-40 keV imaging monitor, based on Silicon microstrip technology and equipped with one dimensional coded masks. We show the design of the experiment and the results of testing campaigns carried out on the engineering model of the experiment.
