Corbulo Academy of Military Science or CAMS is a military officer training acadamy for the United Nations Space Command located on Circinius IV. Corbulo Academy trains children of high-ranking UNSC officers for careers across all the UNSC. The academy was named after the Roman general Gnaeus Domitius Corbulo with a statue of his likeness depicted in the Academy's courtyard. An Orbital Elevator was in the middle of the academy.
Additionally students honor Corbulo by exclaiming 'Axios!' , meaning "I am worthy" in Greek. These were Corbulo's last words as he intentionally fell upon his own sword by order of Emperor Nero, who had ordered Corbulo to kill himself to prove his loyalty to the Roman Empire.
