Mantel Technologies supports the health and well being of both working and companion dogs by developing innovative solutions that improve the quality of life and mission readiness of man’s best friend.
Our current portfolio includes austere veterinary medical solutions, canine-ISR mission enablement, and means of ensuring quality of life during and post-deployment of working dogs operating in new and challenging environments.
Our team is comprised of veterinary professionals (led by a board-certified DVM), experienced working dog handlers, and multi-disciplinary engineers. We collaborate closely with a university veterinary hospital to provide unmatched facilities and veterinary expertise.
Mantel’s focus in Human Systems is centered on the use of technology and information to better position an individual for success in their mission or vocation. We focus on supporting military, first responder, athletic, and in-home healthcare use cases.
Our current portfolio includes wearable intelligence systems for enhanced user health, performance, and use environment awareness; novel textile sensors and electronic textile (smart fabric) garment architectures; and garment system/equipment development for austere environments and specialized needs.
Our team of multi-disciplinary engineers and scientists fuses expertise in materials science, electrical engineering, and human anatomy/physiology to achieve the balance of form and function required to deliver enhanced capability with higher user acceptance. We collaborate with a broad partner network to satisfy requirements in specialized testing, domestic material sourcing, and production.
Multifunctional systems offer an opportunity to meet stringent power, weight, and/or cube budgets. Our team leverages multi-domain technical expertise, mission expertise, unique facilities and creative ingenuity to introduce new capabilities to familiar forms.
CHEMICAL & MECHANICAL PROCESSING
Mantel personnel have experience in developing chemical, biological, and mechanical processes and equipment. Experience includes process intensification, new equipment design, and ruggedization/containerization for deployabilityand modularity.
TECHNOLOGY SCOUTING & DISCOVERY
Mantel provides technology scouting and discovery services to clients requiring a better understanding of a specific technology/capability landscape, or in those instances where leveraging pre-existing developments to shorten solution timelines is desired. Our team utilizes a combination of well-established networks in academia, US Government laboratories, and private industry, and proprietary data analysis tools and open source collection techniques to map technology landscapes and engage with developers of promising technologies. Our team’s experience in technology transition/licensing, reverse engineering, and supply chain development uniquely position us to assist our clients.
Technology scouting and discovery also plays a critical role in Mantel’s solution development process. We firmly believe that recreation of technology rarely aligns with a client or user group’s best interest. Understanding the current state of the art allows us to identify opportunities to build on prior investments, thereby shortening timelines and reducing costs.
