Our Story


The Founding

Our operations quickly expanded with the acquisition of TCPNS Inc, a small business supporting Army tactical customers at Ft. Monmouth, NJ and the Combined Joint Task Force (CJTF) at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan. We provided highly skilled technical Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) throughout Afghanistan and other countries in the CENTCOM AOR.

The Acquisition

We began supporting DISA’s Global Gateway Service Desk and providing Operations Gateway Support with our acquisition of SynExi, a small business in the federal space providing support to DISA and the Navy.

Trace also expanded their in theater presence in Southwest Asia to include additional network technician and HBSS support, which prepared us for significant growth with the Joint NETOPS Control Center – Afghanistan (JNCC-A), Task Force 236, Task Force Protector, and USMC at Camp Leatherneck.


The Expansion

By 2013, Trace had expanded operations with formative programs in Afghanistan supporting the JNCC-A, CJOA-A, USFOR-A, and CONUS providing extensive network engineering and other support services to DISA’s Multinational Information System (MNIS), the predecessor Mission Partner Environment (MPE) organization. Trace advanced into new C2, Communications, and Cyber environments with the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and multiple CCMDs.

We won DISA’s Defense Tactical Communication Systems (DTCS) single-award IDIQ to support Iridium services throughout the CENTCOM AOR, and both Restricted and Unrestricted awards on Army PEO C3T’s Global Tactical Advanced Communications System (GTACTS) IDIQ, where we became the most awarded contractor through the life of the vehicle.

The Transformation

In December 2015, to better enable our growing support with CENTCOM, SOCOM, and JCSE, Trace opened a new office in Tampa, Florida. This approach transformed the way Trace operated, making us more agile, efficient, and inventive.

The new space would quickly evolve to include a state-of-the-art Engineering and Integration Facility, as well as a 24 x 7 x 365 Network and Operations Control Center. Trace adapted their business approach to spread into new customer bases and technological capabilities, which spurred a massive innovation expansion.

We continued our growth and expansion by winning more GTACS task orders than any other large or small contractor. Through Foreign Military Sales (FMS), we provided line of sight (LOS) infrastructure upgrades for the Colombian Military and satellite systems and services for the Iraq Ministry of Defense (MoD).


The Evolution

By 2019, significant contract wins changed Trace’s focus and vision. We were awarded the DISA contract to provide Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) Internet Cafes for deployed US forces globally via commercial SATCOM and terrestrial circuits, establishing more than 165 terminals in 16 countries on 3 continents. We began developing and fielding leading-edge hyperconverged technology to support the US DoD in establishing its Mission Partner Environment (MPE).

We doubled capacity and facility space at both our Tampa and Northern Virginia Headquarters locations. The new, modern spaces meet the expanding technological and service requirements of our customers.

Continued Growth

In 2023, another major contract win in Colorado Springs expanded our CONUS footprint out West. Trace’s support to US Northern Command began in earnest.

Our expansion in the area not only expands our presence, but also gives us the opportunity to interact with and learn about the missions of the surrounding military and government organizations.

Our technical expertise has also continued to grow as we constantly look for new challenges, new efficiencies, and new innovations.


OCONUS Expansion

In 2024, Trace made yet another advancement in the further expansion of our footprint by establishing an international entity in Germany to support multiple in theater contracts.

In such a critical and active mission theater, having a constant presence on the ground enables us to be closer to the problem sets our customers are solving on a daily basis.

The Future

As we continue to expand our presence, both globally and at home, we strive to find people with the same dedication to the mission and desire for a vibrant environment to work.

Our technical expertise has also continued to grow as we constantly look for new challenges, new efficiencies, and new innovations.
