Trace Systems, a systems integrator and technical services firm that provides communications, networking, IT and IA services and solutions for the US Department of Defense and Homeland Security, has won a contract to support the US Army's 7th Theater Tactical Signal Brigade (7th TTSB). More than 40 IT and Information Assurance (IA) Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) will support the Joint Network Operations Control Center – Afghanistan (JNCC-A).
