The goal of FOOT (FragmentatiOn Of Target) experiment is the differential cross-sections of the produced fragments in the nuclear interaction between a ion beam and several targets Depending on the beam energy, the purpose is twofold: in the 150--400 MeV/u range, the results will evaluate the impact of the nuclear fragmentation in the hadrontherapy treatment, while in the 700--1000 MeV/u range they will be used to optimize the shielding of spaceships for long-term space missions. The detector, the physical program, the results still obtained will be presented as well as a Monte Carlo study for the detector performance.
