The design and construction of the ME1/1 endcap forward muon station complex of the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the Large Hadron Collider are presented. The ME1/1 endcap muon station, located inside the superconducting CMS solenoid, plays a key role in the experiment. The detectors of the ME1/1 station provide matching of the track parts reconstructed in the muon and tracker systems and extrapolation of the track to the interaction point. Six-layer cathode strip chambers of the ME1/1 muon station, operating under difficult experimental conditions at a magnetic field of up to 4 T and at a background load of up to 3 kHz/cm2, provide a spatial resolution of 75 μm and a time resolution of 3 ns, which corresponds to the CMS experiment requirements.
