Reverse engineering is the process by which a man-made object is deconstructed to reveal its designs, architecture, or to extract knowledge from the object. Throughout various Terminator fictions, the concept of reverse engineering usually comes with time travel as future technology comes to past whenever an object, usually a Humanoid Hunter Killer (Infiltrator), is sent from the future and later destroyed, then acquired by present-day people.
