We present the status of the Stellar X-ray Polarimeter at November’94 devoted to measure linear polarisation from cosmic X-ray sources between 2 keV and 15 keV which will be flown on the Spectrum-X-Gamma Satellite. In particular, we focus on the performances of the engineering model after the calibrations at Lawrence Livermore Laboratories and on the improvements which have been introduced on the four flight model imaging proportional counters which are key parts of the experiment.
