Innovations

LinQuest is leading the way for national security and commercial space integration, developing innovative solutions to tomorrow's challenges today. LinQuest delivers performance excellence from initial concept to game-changing capability, providing thought leadership and systems engineering process discipline across the enterprise lifecycle, enhancing multi-domain operations for the future force.

3DataLinQTM is wrapped in its own secured virtual machine and provides the ability to cost-effectively integrate existing tools, databases, and analytics to experiment, visualize, assess, and rapidly reconfigure solutions to complex problems.

How It Works

3DataLinQ is a virtual collaborative analysis environment that uses the latest gaming technology to create a 3D virtual space where analysts can interact with Big Data processing without having to navigate Big Data engineering — all from the cloud environment.

Fused Data Feeds and Analytics

3DataLinQTM fuses multiple data feeds using high-speed stream messaging, dynamic queueing, hub-based topologies, routing tickets, and encrypted payloads. Data from disparate sources and multiple domains (e.g., space, air, cyber) can be rapidly visualized, providing situational awareness and enhancing understanding. As a Rapid Application Development technology, 3DataLinQ supports fast prototyping and quick-reaction capabilities.

3DataLinQTM fuses analytics by executing in a multi-tenancy cloud environment under resource orchestration. Temporal, text, geospatial, and machine learning analytics register their services to create an extensible analytic fabric on a massive scale that can autonomously enrich your metadata. 3DataLinQTM enables analysts to view the problem space, support decision-making and tactically execute courses-of-action in real time.

  • Rapid application development
  • Advanced data and metadata visualization
  • Allows interaction with Big Data without requiring complex Big Data engineering

3D Virtualization, Visualization, and Immersive Collaboration

Using the latest gaming technology, LinQuest is leading the way to create an interactive environment enabling analysts, operators, and decision-makers to collaborate in the same virtual space from anywhere on the globe. Legacy browser-based applications, real-time video feeds, video/audio conferencing, Common Operating Pictures (COP), User-Defined Operating Pictures (UDOP), Cesium integration, 3D Geo-centric simulations, and remote virtual desktops are just a few of the many standard features. 3DataLinQ runs on 23 platforms including Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, iPad, and VR wearables, uses a common code base, and streams to users via SaaS from the cloud environment.

Security and Mixed Classifications

When integrated on a mixed classification network environment, such as a "Purple Network", the 3DataLinQTM 3D user experience provides multiple layers of security, down to the pixel-level, to allow collaboration across multiple security domains, enabling remote collaboration managed through permissions and access.

How It Works

LYNXTM emulates future complex C2 concepts using flexible program interfaces to link system functions to allow for best-of-breed products selection. This approach allows users to employ commercially available applications, such as automated enterprise planning, big data analytics, C2 interfaces, and software-defined networking. Functions include resource scheduling, mission optimization, C2, and real-time mission monitoring.

LYNXTM is architected for any mission domain where any number of users need to plan and schedule a diverse set of assets, whether owned and operated or externally accessed (e.g., commercial or Allied).

The tool fosters modeling of a service manager for managing, architecting, and controlling an integrated enterprise of legacy systems with new capabilities.

  • Rapid prototyping and early demonstrations
  • Plug-and-play integration of COTS and NDI products
  • Full-scale systems integration and lifecycle sustainment

Open Architecture

LYNXTM is an open architecture environment enabled by flexible data-driven application program interfaces for "plug-n-play" integration of COTS and NDI products. When coupled with LinQuest's integrated Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and collaborative 3D immersion tools, MBSEi and 3DataLinQTM, LYNXTM is a game changer for accelerating the acquisition cycle.

Evolutionary Acquisition

This architectural framework facilitates a MBSE approach for rapid prototyping, early demonstrations, full-scale systems integration, and life-cycle sustainment. Operators and acquirers can evaluate a full spectrum of capabilities during the Material Solutions Analysis phase, assess programs of record progress, and validate integration readiness.

Horizontal and Vertical Integration

LYNXTM can model interfaces between tactical, operational, and strategic levels. Enterprise-level assessments can enable optimal mix decisions between procured systems and managed services as well as reduce risk for operational integration and deployment. The tool's documented internal interfaces enable rapid tailoring for any operational-level C2 architecture. Additionally, individual missions can be daisy-chained across multiple mission areas to represent an entire enterprise.
