Frequently Asked Questions

You have a question, we have an answer!



From a technical perspective, we can work on concept refinement, technology R&D, systems engineering, technical implementation and testing of software and hardware systems including software, electrical and mechanical. We design for transition to manufacturing. We have worked from user interfaces to embedded device control. We have extensive experience in RF devices as well communications protocols, signal processing, precision geolation, and precision timing. Our experience also includes networked devices of various configurations from close-in to wide area wired and wireless networking including telephony networking.
Wild Manta primarily focuses projects or products that involve improving the human condition or life experience. Our customers typically have an end item in mind whether that is an Software-based Solution, App, Widget or entire system and some inspired insight into technology, market, or lifestyle improvement. We bring that insight into reality across a broad range of high and low tech products. The common theme is a significant technical challenge that will benefit from applied research. In short, we are not an engineering labor subcontractor, nor do we do lab experiments with no end goal in mild. We use research principles and scientific rigor to create new and emerging products.
It starts with a call or a face-to-face meeting. We want to meet you to discuss your product, company, and vision. We have a new-start package to give you which goes over how we work, contact info, a short questionnaire, and some helpful articles on our method for bringing a product to market
We have a variety of arrangements. But, they fall into four basic categories. They are Time and Materials, Firm Fixed Price, Fixed Monthly Spend, and royalty-based. In order to maintain the integrity of our process and the value in your company, we do not work for stock or equity with any of our customers.
We have a research agreement that outlines the commitments for both Wild Manta and the product creator. Your plan must include the way your business is going to grow the local economy, since that is our shared mission. We do this once we figure out that the we are good fit for your company or project/product.
We work with large companies to individual inventors. We focus on three things. We place specific priority on locally built, physical products that are exported from the area. We like to see a drive for job creation, collaboration, and economic development. We want to see that the idea owner/inventor is inspired and excited about their idea and have a clear goal in mind.
General hours are:
9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. We set aside Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10am and 2pm for new product meetings. So, if one of those fits, you can call ahead for an appointment. If one of those times doesn't fit, contact us and we will set up a more convenient time.


We are not an incubator. We build lasting projects, products, and systems. Our goal is long-term relationships with thriving companies or agencies that create a long list of successful endeavors, employ people and are anchors in their community. We hope to still be working together 20 years from now when you have a $100M+ company.
Yes we do. One of our goals is building local economies. We have a special passion for our local area (Florida's Space Coast) and small businesses, but also work with customers anywhere in the the U.S. as well as products for Government Customers.
From a small company persepective, we are looking for a minimum product revenue potential of $3M-$5M in annual sales within a few years. This creates a healthy company or product line that employs people and serves as a stable source of income to the owner. From a large company perspective, we work direct on a contract basis. From a Government perspective, we are an applied research company that is also a HUBZone certified business. That is very rare.
While we can work any phase, we work best when we are involved from the beginning so we can match the product, brand and culture of the company. We also like to be involved in the research that leads to the definition of the final product/project. This is where we create the most value. We can work with you from the very beginning and design something specific to the market/problem. We don't need a specification. We can help you generate one!
We work to both create and document your intellectual property. We work with IP counsel that is reasonable and approachable to make sure your ideas are protected. Or, we can work with your IP counsel to make sure your IP is protected.
We have extensive experience in government contracting. If your product is for the Government, we can help with company structure and introductions, as well. While our goal is commercial viability, we will work with customers that sell only to the Government.
