Riptide Software 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 Software the CACCTUS contract, previously being awarded in 2011.
CEO of Riptide Software, Philip Loeffel said, “I am absolutely ecstatic by the amazing work that the entire CACCTUS team accomplished by winning this award. It’s an honor for Riptide to once again play a role in training our Marines prior to deployment and doing our part to serve this great country.”
CACCTUS immerses trainees in a realistic, scenario-driven environment which enables unit commanders and their staff to rehearse tactics prior to any physical engagement. “We are very happy with the USMC’s decision to retain Riptide as the CACCTUS provider allowing us to continue the journey we started four years ago. We believe that we can apply our expertise in emerging technologies and advanced learning systems to further the capabilities of CACCTUS and ultimately provide the Marines with unparalleled training”, added Barry Clinger, CTO of Riptide Software.
