LinQuest provides engineering and integration support services for the U.S. Air Forceâ€™s satellite communications architecture under a potential seven-year, $562M contract awarded in June, C4ISRNET reported Friday.
â€œWe 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,â€ said Chris Beres, general manager of the space systems engineering and integration group at LinQuest.
â€œThis 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,â€ 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.
