CACCTUS Project Kickoff!

Posted by Marketing on November 19, 2015

As the prime contractor for the Combined Arms Command and Control Trainer System Upgrade (CACCTUS) program, which immerses trainees in realistic, scenario-driven environment for commanders and their battle staff to rehearse tactics, techniques and procedures, Riptide traveled to Twentynine Palms earlier this month to do a site audit after the month-long gaps in contracts.  During the trip, Riptide was  privileged to witness 1st Battalion, 8th Marines (1/8th) use the Combined Arms Staff Trainer (CAST) facility and CACCTUS in particular to prepare for their Battalion Assault Course or “BAC” the culminating event for a Marine Corps Infantry Battalion as they complete four weeks of training at Twentynine Palms, California in preparation for deployment overseas.
