Combined Arms Command & Control Trainer Upgrade System (CACCTUS)

In 2015, Riptide was awarded a five-year contract by the United States Marine Corps (USMC) to continue its support of the Combined Arms Command and Control Trainer Upgrade System (CACCTUS) project. This is the second time the USMC awarded Riptide the CACCTUS contract, previously being awarded in 2011. CACCTUS is an upgrade to the United States Marine Corps' (USMC) Combined Arms Staff Trainer (CAST). The CACCTUS system is comprised of simulation, 2D and 3D visuals, interfaced C4I, synthetic terrain, and After Action Review (AAR) software. One of the major aims of CACCTUS is to immerse Marines in a realistic, scenario-driven environment so that commanders and their battle staffs can train or rehearse combined arms tactics, techniques, procedures and decision-making processes. Successful execution of CACCTUS has required Riptide as prime to manage over 10 subcontractors including several large corporations including General Dynamics, Lockheed, Raytheon, Northrup Grumman, and Leidos. The nature of the effort involves supporting a large baseline of deployed systems on a 24/7 basis while incorporating new features based on Government directed task orders. Riptide has successfully orchestrated these tasks while conducting full life cycle support and introducing new innovations and technology to the CACCTUS program.
