In this thesis, we briefly review the Central Exclusive Process pp -7 P+ If +p as an independent means of exploring the Higgs sector at the LHC. We highlight its ~nique advantages_ over the more-usual inclusive. channels, its discovery potential, and also discuss the experimental challenges that observation of central exclusive production would pose in the environment of the LHC. We examine the issue of controlling backgrounds in the presence of pile-up when running at high luminosity, and the challenge of triggering on a diffractively-produced light standard model Higgs with the CMS & TOTEM detectors. Vve also discuss the emulation of the CMS Global Calorimeter Trigger system within CMS's object-oriented physics reconstruction framew~rk package ORCA.
