Virtual Reality Solutions

Drilling Systems is integrating advanced simulation software with virtual reality technology to create ever more real and immersive training experiences.

Drilling Systems is developing virtual reality packages that work alongside our current simulation software to allow trainees to experience drilling, well control or lifting from every conceivable angle.

From experiencing the giddy height of standing on a fingerboard at the top of a derrick to full rig-site familiarisation, virtual reality is enhancing the first person training experience.
