A : Several theoretical models inspired by the idea of supersymmetry (SUSY) accommodate the possibility of Heavy Stable Charged Particles (HSCPs). The Phase II upgrade of the CMS-RPC system will allow the trigger and identification of this kind of particles exploiting the Time-of-Flight Technique with the improved time resolution that a new Data Acquisition System (DAQ) system will provide (∼ 2 ns). Moreover, new Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) detector chambers will be installed to extend the

Its performance is studied with Monte Carlo simulations and the expected results with the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) data are shown.
