In order to enable and demonstrate interoperability between drilling systems, the project will evolve in parallel along two axes. First, an infrastructure will be developed to enable meaningful exchange of drilling data. We will build upon the work done by NORCE during the DDHub project, and involve several actors of the drilling industry in this activity. This will be achieved by close cooperation with existing initiatives (such a D-WIS) that will provide the appropriate context for this collaborative effort. Reference implementations will be developed to facilitate the adoption from the industry of those new technologies. Then, virtual demonstrations will be made that illustrate the benefits of using semantical integration of various systems. The different project partners will provide commercial applications that will be modified to account for the newly developed system, and several new applications will be developed to emphasize the advantages of including interoperability from the design phase. Those proof-of-concept demonstrations shall take place in a virtual environment, in order to facilitate the testing and validation work.
