We present results of a study of charged particle track and vertex reconstruction with a beam telescope made of four layers of 50 pm-thin CMOS monolithic pixel sensors using the 120 GeV protons at the FNAL Meson Test Beam Facility. We compare our results to the performance requirements of a future e(+)e(-)linear collider in terms of particle track extrapolation and vertex reconstruction accuracies. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V.
