FARMINGTON, Conn., Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- "Reverse-cost analysis" is the process of disassembling a device into its component parts in order to identify the core technology within and calculate the cost to manufacture the device. The results of these studies can be used to pre-analyze the cost of potentially expensive projects at a Research and Development level, to enhance the negotiation power of purchasing managers, and to benchmark competitors' products.

Pinpointing the orientation of the Earth's axis using the world's most stable ring laser The Earth wobbles. Like a spinning top touched in mid-spin, its rotational axis fluctuates in relation to space. This is partly caused by gravitation from the sun and the moon. At the same time, the Earth's rotational axis constantly changes relative to the Earth's surface. On the one hand, this is caused by variation in atmospheric pressure, ocean loading and wind. These elements combine in an effect...
