Abstract

The drilling system consists of surface software and tools that contain PCBA's and firm ware. Since the firmware updates are asynchronous to the field and there are various versions of test cuts of firmware and surface software, it becomes really critical that the surface software for various tools and the firmware in the tools of the drillstring are compatible. Currently the field verifies various versions manually. The auto detection of compatibility of the firmware with the surface software and if required update the firmware automatically is the essence of the invention.
