Los Angeles, CA-based LinQuest Corporation announced on July 8 that it has received a 7.5 year, $562 million award from the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) to provide architecting and full life-cycle systems engineering, integration, and solutions support to the military satellite communications enterprise. The portfolio of SMC programs supported by MSEIT includes all satellites, terminals, and networks for worldwide tactical, strategic, and wideband military communications.  

“For nearly 40 years, LinQuest has assisted SMC in the design, development, deployment, and operation of their MILSATCOM portfolio. This contract win demonstrates the strength of our continuing partnership with SMC, as well as the value of our digital engineering tools and subject matter expertise to their future success,” said Tim Dills, LinQuest CEO and president. “In an increasingly complex space security landscape, government needs effective and trustworthy partners to ensure preparedness. LinQuest has long been at the cutting edge of national space security services, and this continuation of our partnership with the Air Force is a testimony to our unrivaled capabilities.”

The contract has a 20-month base term worth $118.4M and six one-year options. Work will take place in El Segundo, CA, and will run through December 2026. The award is the result of a competitive acquisition. LinQuest is a leading contractor supporting space services for the United States and was also recently awarded a $9 million contract to support the establishment of the U.S. Space Command.
