I/ITSEC 2015: AEgis Technolgies Announces CACCTUS Contract Win

The AEgis Technologies Group announced their role as a key subcontractor to Riptide Software on their award of a five-year $47 million contract by the United States Marine Corps (USMC) to continue its support of the Combined Arms Command and Control trainer Upgrade System (CACCTUS) programme.

This is Riptide's second CACCTUS award from the USMC, who previously awarded Riptide Software the CACCTUS contract in 2011 for $44 million.

Riptide leads an accomplished team, comprised of Leidos, General Dynamics Mission Systems, AEgis Technologies, AVT Simulation, and Phoenix Logistics that will continue to provide Post Deployment Software Support (PDSS) for CACCTUS sites, while continuing to improve CACCTUS to ensure the system reaches Full Operational Capability (FOC) through innovations offered by "Team CACCTUS". AEgis currently provides the Modus three-dimensional (3D) stealth view to CACCTUS, and will be responsible on the new contract for providing and integrating next-generation visual solutions that will meet the FOC requirements.
