The Cryogenic Apparatus for Precision Tests of Argon Interactions with Neutrinos (CAPTAIN) program isdesigned to make measurements of scientific importance to long-baseline neutrino physics and physics topics that will be explored by large underground detectors. The experiment employs two liquid Argon time projections chambers (LArTPCs), – a primary detector with approximately 10-ton that will be deployed at different facilities for physics measurements and a prototype detector with 2-ton of liquid argon for configuration testing. The physics programs for CAPTAIN include measuring neutron interactions at Los Alamos Neutron Science Center, measuring neutrino interactions in medium energy regime (1.5–5 GeV) at Fermilab's NuMI beam, and measuring neutrino interactions in low energy regime (< 50 MeV) at stopped pion sources for supernova neutrino studies. This talk will give an overview of the status of the CAPTAIN program.
