LinQuest has secured a $76 million award from the U.S. Space Force to support the special capabilities division at the branch’s Space and Missile Systems Center, the company announced Wednesday.
“LinQuest traces its heritage of sophisticated satellite communications back to 1977,” said Chris Beres, General Manager, Space and Air Solutions Group at LinQuest. “As a mission partner, we are excited to continue these efforts to help the Space Force shape the future of military satellite communications and deliver critical capability to the warfighter.”
As the prime contractor, LinQuest will provide additional systems engineering and integration support to the SATCOM enterprise at SMC. This contract modification aligns the company’s ongoing support to the division with its efforts across the SATCOM portfolio.
The contract expands upon LinQuest’s support for the Space Force. In April 2020, the agency awarded LinQuest a $14 million contract to ensure the company continues to provide support for the U.S. Space Command. The contract extends LinQuest’s support to the nascent U.S. Space Command through April 21, 2021. Work will be performed in Colorado at Peterson Air Force Base and Schriever Air Force Base.
In April 2019, LinQuest was awarded a one-year contract to help Joint Force Space Component Commander Gen. John “Jay” Raymond stand up the 11th combatant command. Under that $9 million sole-source contract, LinQuest provided nonpersonal services to stand up and support U.S. Space Command.
