Practicing the business of science
and the science of business


Established in 1997, Fundamental Technologies (FTECS) is a Kansas small business. FTECS is owned and managed by Dr. Jerry W. Manweiler whom has been involved in space science, computer technology, and data analysis for government, academics, and industry since 1979.


Over the years, we've had the honor and privilege of working on numerous NASA satellite missions; developing big-data software solutions; collecting, processing and distributing scientific data for public, scientific, and educational use. Our staff have been involved in the development of software systems for government and private clients in a diverse set of domain spaces including Space Sciences, Health Care, Criminal Justice, Big-Data, Identity Managment, and many others.


We're confident we can assist you with your business software and data management needs: from beyond our solar system or just across town; interstellar particle data or  business operations and market data.


Your business challenge might not take a rocket scientist,
but we have 'em if you need 'em.
