AB - This paper reports on the final design and the work in progress on the STAR project (IPAC2014:WEPRO115), which is under construction at the Univ. of Calabria (Italy). The project is devoted to the construction of an advanced Thomson source of monochromatic tunable, ps-long, polarized X-ray beams, ranging from 40 up to 140 KeV . At present the buildings and main plants have been completed as the acquisition of main components: the RF photo-injector, the accelerating section, laser systems for collision and photo-cathode, RF Power Source and magnets are ready to start installation and site acceptance tests. The design of laser lines is complete and simulated by ZEMAX, aiming to minimize energy losses, optical distortions and providing a tunable experimental setup as well. The RF power network is close to be tested, it's based on a 55MW (2.5us pulse) S-band Klystron driven by a 500kV Pulse Forming Network based modulator and a Low Level RF system, running at 100 Hz. The Control System is been designed using EPICS and allows to manage easily and fastly each machine parameter. We expect to start commissioning the machine by the end of 2016 and obtain the first collisions within the first part of 2017.
