Technology reverse and forward engineering

In an ideal world, there would be no requirement to reverse engineer patented technology, because the technology would have been described in great detail allowing its reproduction. This, however, is not the case in the real world. Typically, the technology is protected by a combination of patent and trade secret or patent and associated material. Reverse engineering is a legitimate way to acquire and/or use technologies. NextGenRnD performs reverse engineering of technologies. For such reverse analysis no direct access to technology is required.
