The ATLAS and CMS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) may discover the squarks (qℳ) and gluino (qℳ) of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) in the early stage of the experiments if their masses are lighter than 1.5 TeV. In this paper we propose the sub-system m T2 variable (m sub T2), which is sensitive to the gluino mass when m qℳ>m qℳ. Using it with the inclusive m T2 distribution proposed earlier, and masses can be determined simultaneously in the early stage of the experiments. Results of Monte Carlo simulations at sample MSSM model points are presented both for signal and background.
