The Binary Cascade introduces a novel approach towards intra-nuclear cascade calculations. Like many QMD codes, it uses a detailed 3-dimensional model of the nucleus, and is based exclusively on binary scattering between reaction participants and nucleons within this nuclear model. Like a classical cascade, it uses optical potentials to describe the time evolution of particles passing through the nuclear medium. In the present paper we introduce the model, and investigate its predictive power for hadron spectra in nucleon nuclear reactions final states.
