The Defense Department said Friday the company will perform work in Afghanistan, Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates through May 31, 2018.
NETCOM provides technical control and support services for Director of Information Management operations, oversees the service branch’s total information structure as well as helps defend the Army’s frequency spectrum.
