ROBERT E. GREEN

– Founder, Innovator Entrepreneur

Project development experience – Robert has led the development of 13 patents; invented innovative technologies; founded, developed and sold multiple companies; secured funding from the US government and won various national awards.

WITTEN TECHNOLOGIES, Inc (WTI) – In 1996, following 15 years as a general and utility contractor, Robert Green built a career in technology development. Green first founded Witten Technologies, Inc. (WTI) where he served as CEO/Chairman for 10 years.

The company invented and developed Radar Tomography (RT) creating the first high-resolution underground imagery to capture survey-quality precision.

By 2001, Green led a staff of former Schlumberger geophysicists working with Witten and electrical engineers to create prototypes for the first commercial radar-based geophysical photogrammetric camera capable of implementing the proprietary RT software. In the process, 13 patents were developed by Green and his staff. WTI, with the Electric Power and Research Institute (EPRI) created the equipment to enable the visual imagery of buried utilities and related items with much greater accuracy for the first time in history.

2002

$1M Grant to WTI from US Department of Transportation, Office of Research and Development, in partnership with Consolidated Edison R&D, award to integrate RT with its new technology, Arrayed Induction Tomography.

Innovation In Construction NOVA Award to WTI Construction Innovation Forum (CIF) at the University of Michigan recognizes WTI.

2004
Innovation of the Year Award for Software to WTI and Robert Green. The Wall Street Journal recognizes RT as a commercially viable method to see underground. The WSJ cites RT as the fifth most important innovation worldwide.

Governor’s New Product Award to WTI and Robert Green. The Florida Engineering Society recognizes RT. Subsequently the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) cites the importance of this technology and adopts RT as a “strategic objective.”

The Map Network, Inc. Green was founding Investor and mentor generating a 10-fold return on investment. The company solved data mining techniques that placed commercial data/information on GPS/cell phones digital map application. Sold to Navteq 2007.

2005
US National Park Service (NPS) contracted WTI to use RT to scan the underground of the White House prior to having a new underground irrigation system built.
2007
Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) RT is credited as the first commercially practical geophysical photogrammetric camera and is adopted FDOT as a recommended practice in its 2008 Plans Preparation Manual.
2009 – 2019
Greenavations Power Green established a company to build and develop solar arrays in Georgia and Maryland. Green’s first three solar farms were the largest in Georgia at the time. EPA District 4 then requested Green’s financial and technical expertise to help launch solar construction projects, resulting in Green constructing solar arrays for four wastewater treatment plants for cities in Georgia.
2018 – 2023
Florida Solar Utilities Green founded company to develop solar services for wastewater treatment plants in Florida. The Quincy, FL plant was engineered and constructed so that 100 % of the cost of electricity has been offset for the next 30 years.
2018
Maryland state-funded pilot project for first “Zero Net Energy” solar community at Perry Point, MD. Green was selected by the state and completed the successful development, engineering, buildout and execution of the Net- Zero project.
2020
American Solar Rail, LLC (ASR) Green founded ASR to solve problems preventing mass adoption of high-speed rail.
2022
Patent for Rechargeable Propulsion System – Green is awarded patent for a rechargeable propulsion system for a new rail car, the EMDI. The EMDI’s unique recharging enables a battery driven passenger/freight train to operate as a Continuous Railway System – a goal of the rail industry for more than 150 years. MxVRail has urged certification of EMDI by the Federal Railroad Admin (FRA) – the purpose of this investment.
