Three searches for third generation squarks using proton-proton collision data at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC are presented. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of $12.9\,\text{fb}^\text{-1}$.
The analyses define exclusive search regions and estimate contributions from standard model processes to these regions by using control samples in the data.
No significant deviation from the standard model expectation is observed in the data.
The results are interpreted in simplified SUSY models of direct and gluino-mediated top squark production.
Depending on the model, top squark masses up to 910 GeV and gluino masses up to 1780 GeV are excluded.
