Our Heritage

LinQuest Corporation began business in February 2004, providing its government customers with highly valued, state-of-the-art, and cost-effective technical solutions that were unbiased, independent, clear, and based on experience and thorough knowledge of the subject matter. We trace our more than 40-year heritage back to LinCom Corporation. In 1977, LinQuest personnel began supporting the US Military Services in the development, testing, and deployment of various highly sophisticated Military Satellite Communications (MILSATCOM) programs. LinCom was acquired by Titan Corporation in 2000 and spun out as LinQuest Corporation in 2004.

Since then, LinQuest has grown and diversified its capabilities, expertise, and customer base to include multiple government agencies and commercial enterprises, while retaining its roots in engineering excellence and client satisfaction. It is this heritage that has evolved into the LinQuest culture that values people, technical expertise in engineering, operational services, and technology solutions with an impeccable record for customers’ mission success.
