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.
Riptide Learning, a division of Riptide Software, Inc., will demonstrate the first ever xAPI-enabled training for rifle marksmanship ranges on Dec. 3 at I/ITSEC. Riptide’s REAPER proof of principle was selected by the ADL for demonstration at PlugFest—a satellite event at the 2014 Interservice/Industry Training Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC). I/ITSEC is the world’s largest modeling, simulation and training conference.
