The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been built under the French-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland. Two opposing beams of protons will collide with a centre of mass energy of 14 TeV, an energy seven million times that of the first accelerator. The LHC takes particle physics research to a new frontier. On September 10th 2008, the first single pilot beam of 2 x 10^9 protons was circulated successfully through the entire LHC, with an injection energy of 0.45 TeV. The first collisions are expected in Summer 2009. The work presented in this thesis focuses on the performance and commissioning of the ATLAS SCT detector. For Endcap-A the assembly and calibration test results are described extensively in this work. A commissioning run in 2008 used cosmic rays to analyse and verify that the performance of the SCT barrels was within specifications. These results are presented and discussed.
