Frontier Technology Inc. Announces SaaS and Licensed Versions of FTI MERM Platform (Mission Effectiveness Readiness Management)

Powerful cloud-based software platform provides the U.S. Navy a bird’s-eye view into the health, performance and mission readiness of all systems in individual ships, and ships across the fleet.

BEAVERCREEK, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#DODDataIntegration–Frontier Technology Inc. (FTI), a leading provider of deep data expertise and mission-tailored services and solutions to the United States Department of Defense (DoD) and the Intelligence Community, today announced the availability of SaaS and licensed versions of its Mission Effectiveness Readiness Management (MERM) platform. MERM was previously only available as part of FTI’s tech-enabled service offerings.


FTI’s MERM platform is a cloud-based solution that leverages AI/ML to help the U.S. Navy make informed real-time or near-real-time maintenance and supply decisions.

MERM provides a clear visual display of the current status of all weapon, sensor, command and decision, and other elements that support combat missions. It delivers predictive fault information to enable high speed decisions and actions in support of Navy operational readiness.

MERM’s benefits include:

  • Faster speed to data
  • Generates key insights faster
  • Aggregates data for enterprise view
  • Real-time and historical health and trend analysis
  • Increases data maturity
  • Increases confidence in data
  • Scalable to the enterprise

MERM can be operational in weeks or months versus years, at a fraction of the cost of alternatives. It serves a wide range of users, from those with basic skills to highly technical professionals. MERM isn’t disruptive to current customer environments, and works with virtually all systems, applications and data types. And FTI customers continue to own their own data.

“Current systems provide limited real-time battle space situational awareness due to lack of visibility into the operating status, performance and mission readiness of ship systems, and laddered up, to the status of the fleet,” said Jose Hidalgo, President, Frontier Technology Inc. “FTI MERM addresses that challenge by taking in data and outputting insights and visuals that enable the Navy to proactively manage mission readiness.”

FTI MERM is Now Available via SaaS and Perpetual Licensing

Delivery via SaaS

FTI MERM is now available via a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. Subscription pricing allows fast and predictable adaptation to changing customer demands, ensuring new capabilities, data ingestion and integration requirements, and scalability can be delivered as fast as they are needed. Additionally, MERM’s throughput-based approach is designed to meet a wide range of needs, from maintaining current systems to deploying enterprise-scale solutions across multiple Program Executive Offices (PEOs), industry partner systems or large-scale Fleet operations. MERM is highly flexible, enabling tailored support for a diverse range of requirements, from straightforward updates to complex, cloud-based installations for extensive user communities. The demand signal from the customer defines the volume of data and how quickly it must be ingested.

Perpetual Licensing

FTI’s new perpetual licensing model for on-premise implementations is designed for new and existing customers seeking both affordability and predictability. This option also provides an opportunity to secure continuous support, regular capability enhancements, critical security updates, and the latest ATO and environmental certifications, keeping your operations not just running, but running securely. Designed and built with flexibility at the forefront, our licensing model ensures customers can leverage the full power of FTI MERM at an affordable price point. Customers can choose to license FTI MERM independently or in combination with our expert technical services, ensuring seamless integration and maintenance across various environments.
