Richard Weddle

Advisory Board Member

Mr. Weddle helped win a $400 million contract for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Rockwell, and Bechtel with ultra-reliable computer technology for atomic vapor laser isotope separation. His ultra-reliable technology was licensed and helped found the United States Enrichment Corporation for $3B.

He then co-founded Triplex, a venture funded ($4 million) company sold to Rockwell Automation for $200 million–now listed on the New York Stock Exchange ‘ROK’. Rockwell Automation is still selling his ‘Trusted’ and ‘Regent’ TMR products.

He created the technology (demographic algorithm) to found FreePC, NetZero, and the demographic advertising algorithm changed Goto.com and created Overture (sold to Yahoo for $1.63 billion).

Mr. Weddle has held top security clearances with the DOJ/FBI top secret S.C.I. and the Department of Defense TS, where he recently saved $1B in a should cost review. He has also helped build over 100 startups as Director of Innovation at the University of Southern California in the technology transfer office helping found four anti-cancer companies, guiding an anti-infection plasma generator and working on IP for a now FDA approved electronic eye for the blind.

He has current patents pending for machine shops of the future, including molecular “3D Printing” and for parts to be built in zero gravity space or high inertia environments such as airborne applications and at-sea platforms. 

Consultant
Software engineer Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, won $400M contract for LLNL, Rockwell, Bechtel. 

Reliability engineering Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. 
Licensed technology out of LLNL to create privatized United States Enrichment Corporation, for $3B. 

Licensed technology out of LLNL to create Triplex, fault-tolerant factory automation startup – raised $4M in venture funding from Hambrecht and Quist, built, operated and sold Triplex to Rockwell Automation for $200M  – Rockwell still sells the ‘Trusted’ and ‘Regent’ TMR products. 

Consulted with Proctor & Gamble, Nike, GE, and Lexicon Branding. He created or updated startups at Idealab ElectricSchoolhouse, original Cars.com, FreePC, and NetZero. Modified Citysearch growing revenue 1,700% in 90 days with new demographic ad algorithm and modified or created Goto.com and Overture (sold to Yahoo for $1.63 billion). 

Consulting at Ernst & Young, clients included Amgen, Sprint, Ericcson, Disney, Intel, Chrysler, Ford, P&G, GE, Farmers Insurance, Microsoft, Advanced Micro Devices, Intel, Hilton, Southwest Airlines, Texaco, Chevron, The Government of Singapore, and others. Sold $26M a year in consulting. Turned around wholly owned subsidiary, BiosGroup in 88 days, selling company to NuTech with clients including P&G, Ford, Boeing, Safeway, SAP AG, Air Liquide, TI, as well as government agencies like the NSA, ONR, IRS.

After 9/11, Mr. Weddle went to work at the DOJ in the FBI, cleared Top Secret SCI as an analyst. Solved a key problem.  Then went to work for Bank of America as First Vice President leading the Business Transformation Group the internal consulting group. 

Recruited as Director of Innovation for the USC Stevens Institute for Innovation, the technology transfer office for USC’s 4,000 patents and $600M in R&D and new innovations largely out of the Medical and Engineering schools.  I helped spin out over 80 startups, and create sales and revenue for very new drugs or devices or treatments or inventions including Molaris-XG drug simulations software, Argus II Retinal Prosthesis – electronic eyes for blind, MethyLight cancer screening, Language Weaver real-time language translator, Timeless Automation sold to Intel, Asynchronous Circuits maker of the record 1.2B transistor chips, LightStage 3d optical capture, winner of multiple academy awards, Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC) grid-independent electricity from methanol, Lotus Tissue Repair, $275M funding, Syntouch: Quantifying Touch – sensor/haptics for robots better than human touch, Polyethylene Technology for Artificial Human Joints, Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLED) – remake display technology, etc.

Mr. Weddle has worked with over 300 startups through USC and Ernst & Young. 

Invisidex – helped invent technology for anti-counterfeiting by inserting DNA slices from extremophiles into key parts, patented. 

Returned to Government Service helping the U.S. Department of Defense with oversight of 165 R&D projects and saving the taxpayer and U.S. Government $1B in a should cost review. 

Mr. Weddle began his career as a software-engineer working on the plutonium separator, and then as a reliability-engineer in the pulse tunable dye-laser facility at the U.S. Federal nuclear research facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The high-energy physics projects won $400M in contracts for LLNL and Rockwell and Bechtel. Mr. Weddle and his team licensed the ultra-reliable fault-tolerant computer control technology they invented for LLNL and created the venture funded firm, Triplex.  

Mr. Weddle’s recent work are in patent applications for so-called molecular ‘3D Printing’ technology using magnetic fields to create metal, non-magnetics, plastics, and biologic molecular parts including computer manufactured parts built in zero gravity of space and within high inertia environs like airborne and at sea platforms. 

He has multiple university degrees in science and business.
