Resumen:
The muon detector of the AMIGA (Auger Muons and Infill for the Ground Array) extension of thePierre Auger Observatory is currently finishing the construction of its engineering array phase. The engineeringarray consists of seven detectors in a 750 m regular hexagon with buried scintillator counters in each of its verticesand center. The muon counters are buried alongside each Auger surface detector station in the infill area. Twoadditional twin detectors are being built to study the muon counting accuracy and the design validation. Anoverview of the construction and deployment of the muon scintillation detector array is presented with an emphasison the current data analyses.
