The International Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) will carry out a
2
systematic investigation of ionization cooling of a muon beam, for the future
3
Neutrino Factory and the Muon Collider. As the emittance measurement will be
4
done on a particle-by-particle basis, a sophisticated beam instrumentation is
5
needed to measure both particle coordinates and timing vs RF in a harsh
6
environment due to high particle rates, fringe magnetic fields and RF
7
backgrounds. A PID system, based on three time-of-flight stations (with
8
resolutions up to 50-60 ps), two Aerogel Cerenkov counters and a KLOE-like
9
calorimeter (KL) has been constructed and has allowed the commissioning of the
10
MICE muon beamline in 2010. It will be soon followed  by an Electron Muon Ranger
11
to determine the muon range at the apparatus  downstream 
12
end and later by two tracker detectors to trace incoming particles inside two
13
high-field  superconducting solenoids. Detector performances will be shown and
14
their use for the beamline characterization fully illustrated.
