A COMPNOR company was a formation of the Imperial Army.
Consisting of 157 CompForce troops from the observation branch, each company consisted of a which including a Captain, four other officers and four platoons worth of troops. Three COMPNOR observer companies would always be attached to each army, systems army and sector army headquarters. Which meant that each company lacked organic support units.
The role of the observer company was partially disputed by members of the regular army. Who viewed them as northing more than political spies. While troops from assault section of CompForce generally believed they were genuinely there to 'learn' how the imperial military operated. Practically speaking; each Observer made sure that all officers and enlisted personnel showed proper respect to the tenets of the New Order. Contributing to the less than stellar relationship with the imperial military; even an insult to a CompForce Observer could ensure a quick end to anyone's career.
