Description

We discuss prospects for SUSY searches in the inclusive all-hadronic channel in the CMS experiment, and we present early results demonstrating the current performance of MET and other observables that play a critical role in these searches. These signatures are expected to be amongst the most sensitive to many SUSY models, but they are also very challenging. Emphasis is placed on methodologies for data-driven background determinations, tests based on early 7 TeV data, and early assessments of the tail of the MET and related distributions.
