The ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider is currently preparing for a major upgrade of the Inner Tracking for the Phase-II LHC operation (known as HL-LHC), scheduled to start in 2026. In order to achieve the integrated luminosity of 4000 fb$^{-1}$ over 10 years of operation, the instantaneous luminosity is expected to reach unprecedented values, resulting in about 200 proton-proton interactions in a typical bunch crossing. The radiation damage at the full integrated luminosity implies integrated hadron fluencies over \neqval{2}{16}, requiring a complete replacement of the existing Inner Detector. An all-silicon Inner Tracker (ITk) is under development with a pixel detector surrounded by a strip detector, aiming to provide increased tracking coverage up to |$\eta$| = 4. The current prototyping, targeting an ITk Strip Detector system consisting of four barrel layers in the centre and forward regions composed of six disks at each end, is described in the ATLAS Inner Tracker Strip Detector Technical Design Report (TDR). With the recent final approval of the ITk strip TDR by the CERN Research Board, the prototyping phase is coming to an end and the pre-production readiness phase has started at the institutes involved. In this contribution an overview of the ITk strip detector components is given, including measurements of parts irradiated with a range of fluences reaching up to the predicted HL-LHC doses, demonstrating the excellent radiation hardness achieved.
