Title: The CMS-TOTEM Precision Proton Spectrometer: CT-PPS

The CMS-TOTEM Precison Proton Spectrometer, CT-PPS, is an approved project to add 3D silicon tracking and quartz Cherenkov timing detectors in Roman pots at z = ±204-215 m from the CMS collision point to study final states p+X + p. The central state X can be aW-pair from a photon-photon interaction, high ET jets from gluon collisions, etc., with M(X) obtained directly as well as from the two outgoing protons. The project is designed to operate at high luminosity, with up to about 50 interactions per 25 ns bunch crossing, and to be fully operational for physics in 2016.
