LinQuest continues Air Force space work with $562M win
LinQuest Corp. has won a $562 million follow-on contract to continue supporting the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center.
Under the MILSATCOM Systems Engineering, Integration and Test contract, known as MSEIT, LinQuest will provide systems engineering, integration and solutions support for military satellite communications. Support covers several programs including satellites, terminals, and networks for worldwide tactical, strategic and wideband military communications.
LinQuest has been supporting the Air Force Space & Missile Systems Center for 40 years, and this specific satellite programs since at least 2003. It last won this contract in 2013 when it was known as the MILSATCOM Analysis Systems Integration and Engineering Services contract, or MASIES. It was worth $342.3 million over six years.
The new contract stretches over seven years.
” We are grateful to know that SMC continues to recognize and value our digital engineering tools and subject matter expertise as integral ingredients to their future success,” said Tim Dills, LinQuest president and CEO.
The win also showcases the value LinQuest’s owners, private equity firms CoVant Management and Madison Dearborn, saw in the company when they acquired it last year.
