I noticed that when I googled it. Cambridge is where all those moles from the Cold War era came from, spying for the Soviets, so that works well.

It's also the CalTech Core-Collapse Program.

Yes, the C's are esses, and the P is an R in Cyrillic. I have 3 Russian employees and they are always mangling abbreviations. I remember being on an Aeroflot flight once and the Pepsi bottles had a Pi for each P, which made them look over-engineered.
