Custom Software Development

MERC provides custom software tools and systems that focus on solving the problems our customers face on a daily basis. Establishing close working relationships with our customers allows us to focus our solutions on their specific needs rather than on the more general needs of the larger commercial market. This increases functional efficiencies over mass market software packages.

ICARR-3D Airframe Model Individual Aircraft Tracking Programs (AIRCAT)

Our customers buy exactly what they need. We employ flexible and responsive development methodologies and right-sized development teams to reduce the overall development time, so we can deploy working solutions rapidly and efficiently.

When forming our systems engineering and software development teams, MERC is able to leverage a very broad experience base. Computer systems capabilities extend beyond software development to hardware requirements analysis and system design, networking, and system and database administration.

We also include experienced engineers from the other engineering disciplines as part of the development team to provide problem domain expertise when applicable.

Specific software development capabilities include .NET application development, Java development, Oracle application development, database development, hardware control interfaces, networking, and system administration.

Many of our solutions incorporate 3-D graphical applications, data mining, data visualization, or legacy system integration methods. These solutions are developed using Agile development methodologies and SEI certified CMMI Level 3 software engineering processes.
