The IADC Advanced Rig Technology (ART) Committee’s Drilling Control Systems (DCS) Subcommittee was created to provide information and guidelines to improve safety and reliability of the interfaces between human and machine, and between multiple control systems installed on offshore and onshore drilling facilities. In this video, DCS Subcommittee Chairman Trenton Martin discusses the subcommittee’s latest projects, including a review of methods to risk assess cyber security threats on a drilling rig.
