How can RSS bring your independent drilling operation to the next level?
Denis Biglin, Executive Vice President at APS Technologies discusses the advantages of integrating APS SureSteer technology to the independent drillers tool string.

SureShot-DDS

MWD Digital Directional Sensor

Superior accuracy that will keep you on track

MWD Digital Directional Sensor

This MWD system provides highly accurate azimuth and inclination data for all applications from straight-hole through horizontal drilling. The DDS includes a tri-axial fluxgate magnetometer and three quartz accelerometers in APS’s unique ruggedized package. Simultaneous 16-bit analog-to-digital conversion of all channels assures the best possible directional measurement while rotating.

APS Technology offers local NIST-traceable DDS recalibration in China, Russia, Dubai,
and the United States, which simplifies R&M logistics and improves asset utilization.
