The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) is a large acceptance particle physics detector installed on board the International Space Station (ISS) since May 19th 2011 to perform a high statistic and long duration measurement of the spectra of primary charged cosmic rays. This paper describes the characteristics of the AMS-02 detector and reviews its in orbit performances.
