I am posting/publishing the question and response to a recent query regarding the last posted article.
Question: I enjoyed reading the step by step reverse engineering overview you have provided in this article Nick. It has never occurred to me before how much of the material, and OML surface information gets transferred to the automated drilling/riveting equipment.
Don’t the existing export control laws cover automated drilling robots? Aren’t they subject to ITAR like most equipment used to manufacture military hardware?
