The aim of the Proton Precision Spectrometer (PPS) Project is to add precision forward-proton tracking (~10 μm, ~1 μrad) and timing (with resolution < ~10 ps) at 240 m on both sides of CMS, with installation foreseen by 2014, for p + p → p + X + p physics at normal high-luminosity low-beta pp running. These will be new CMS sub-detectors, fully integrated and operative in standard data taking conditions. We present the approach and results for tracking and timing detectors in PPS.
