Abstract

The aim of this research was the further development of the drilling system for extremely precise and aligned drilling operations in all directions. For this purpose a specially developed gyromagnetic north navigation system was laboratory and field tested and CBE-integrated. Step by step, the system's accuracy of direction, even in rough drilling conditions, was continually improved with the result that there is now a fully functional operating prototype available consisting of a navigation system and a substantially improved hydraulic and mechanical target aligned drilling system. The existing data transmission system was improved and alternative solutions were examined.
