    The continuing need for a reliable data path up to 10 km long with reasonable data rate is a critical issue for any number of petroleum industry applications. This article gives a brief introduction to well completions; casing and tubing use in finished wells; and considerations affecting a commercial system addressing the data rate problem in a finished well. The Measure-While-Drilling applicatio... View full abstract»

    The severe conditions of the drilling environment greatly limit technical options available to the equipment designer. Some desirable options cannot be used simply because they are too large for the restricted diameters available in drilling tools. Drilling would greatly benefit from inertial navigation solutions, but suitable conventional components cannot be used because of their physical size. ... View full abstract»

    In this second part of the two-part article on spectrum analyzer evolution, future advances in spectrum analysis have been addressed, specifically the advances in real-time spectrum analysis. The proposed extension of real-time spectrum analyzers with a Filterbank architecture has been developed as a generalization of the classical overlapped windowed-FFT concept. This leads to further improvement... View full abstract»
