The performance requirements of the SMOS payload are demanding in terms of spatial resolution, accuracy, stability and precision, all critical to fulfill its scientific objectives. For this reason a commissioning plan for MIRAS was carefully devised to verify, calibrate and characterize all instrument parameters which could have an impact on its performance. This presentation describes the most important results from the instrument commissioning phase.
