In Drilling Alignment for an Inertial Measurement Unit
By Michael Poscente, Gavin Mercer, Curtis Mak and Michael Sobieraj
Academic Mentor: Dr. Martin Mintchev
The premise of the project was to eliminate magnetometers from existing MWD systems due to the fact that they can be influenced by almost any metal nearby. In order to do this the team opted to use only inertial measurements in the form of gyroscopes and accelerometers. These sensors aren't perfect themselves however, and that is where In-Drilling Alignment comes in, during 8 minute pauses in drilling the team was able to calibrate the sensors using known motion, and make an error model that could be applied to subsequent drilling until there is another pause.

Andres Nygren, Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Enginieering, supervised an undergraduate student this past summer with the help of the PURE program. Exploring a brand new science field; learning new software programs; helping to design an innovative machine to tackle an environmental issue; taking an active part in developing an award-winning science project. It’s hard to believe that University of Calgary student Colin Brown managed to pack all of these activities into one summer schedule.
