Among the tools needed for less-costly scientific superdeep drilling and sampling are long-life hard-rock drill and core bits; special core drilling technology for recovering a significant percentage of core; the use of hollow shaft downhole drilling and coring motors for improved core recovery, increased penetration rates, and reduced fatigue and stress in long drill strings; advanced automation for drill pipe handling and tripping equipment; improved methods for borehole trajectory control; more sensitive monitors placed near the bit for early deviation detection, and downhole instruments to monitor core and drill bit performance.
