Osprey Connect Release Notes

Osprey Connect v2008.1


Osprey Connect (formely Real-Time Data Link or RTDL) simplifies the creation of
applications requiring access to real-time drilling data on a Windows platform;
reduces Time/Support required from RT Source Team and risk for RT Applications
such as InterACT, IDEAL, and Horizon; as well as provides the end user with a
consistent and intelligent user interface (UI) for establishing a real-time connection
across multiple Osprey Connect enabled applications.
Osprey Connect solves issues for three sets of users the end users, the application
development teams, and the real-time source teams. The issues solved for each
user group are:
For the end users, Osprey Connect provides a common UI and ultimately a
multitude of adapters that can intelligently connect to a source of real-time
drilling data.
For the application development teams, Osprey Connect provides a common API
that is completely independent of the real-time source being accessed. Time is no
longer an issue as it relates to developing a UI that enables users to connect to a
real-time source. Osprey Connect provides all UI for the end users connection.
For the real-time source teams, only one connection to provide real-time data
needs to be addressed. Real-time enables all existing and new applications that
are Osprey Connect enabled.

Changes in v2008.1
Osprey Connect v2008.1 provides the following features and enhancements:
Connect to Real-Time Data Server. New servers (RigLink, Insite, etc.) were added.
Load Tubular Objects, wbGeometry and mudLogs
Execute multiple instances of RTDL within one application (ability to connect to
multiple wells, servers, concurrently)
Publish data to WITSML Sources
Improve navigation
Verify Osprey Connect software is Licensed
Connect through Proxy Server
