LinQuest has won a potential seven-year, $99.2 million contract to support a Defense Department-run center used for navigation warfare functions by the U.S. military and coalition partners.
The Air Force received one other offer for the contract that covers non-personal services to the Joint Navigation Warfare Center, the Defense Department said in its Monday contracts digest.
Established in 2004, the JNWC works to enable positioning, navigation and timing superiority through offensive and defensive PNT operations, along with situational awareness and operational assessments and analysis.
Colorado Springs-based LinQuest’s responsibilities will include IT support, logistics, program management and facilities management. Solicitation documents also detail requirements for engineering, analysis, modeling, simulation, assessments and special studies.
JNWC is housed at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico and is under the direction of Strategic Command. The center contains 65 personnel from the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force; plus armed forces of Canada and Australia. DOD civilians and contractors also work there.
