LinQuest provides engineering and integration support services for the U.S. Air Force's satellite communications architecture under a potential seven-year, $562M contract awarded in June, C4ISRNET reported Friday.
“We provide a model-based systems engineering capability and integration to assist the government from everything from the very start of a program […] to operations, monitoring operations and then we have sustainment,“ said Chris Beres, general manager of the space systems engineering and integration group at LinQuest.
“This capability [helps the Air Force] assess and balance their investments, and how they inform their decisions with data that we provide. They can do portfolio optimization, course of actions, analysis of alternatives, what ifs, […] so they can figure out where they spend the next dollar, how they are going to set up their architecture,“ Beres added.
The military satcom contract includes support for the Enhanced Polar System and the Advanced Extremely High Frequency satellite platform, which offers anti-jamming communications for the Wideband Global Satcom system, according to the report.
