Here are some of the main features of Warrior Data Acquistion Software
Warrior Software now includes the ability to generate a distributable digital media that would allow a User
to supply their clients an interactive copy of log data to view without needing Warrior software installed on their computer. Multiple
files may be included for different log runs. It also includes the option to add a PDF file to the distributable files in DVD, USB flash
drives or attachable email files.
The media would allow the customer to view the log much as interactive plot is viewed by scrolling up and down the log. It does not
provide capabilities to alter the log presentation such as changing scales or adding or removing curves. It does have the ability to
change the vertical scaling. If the plot was created with a 3D presentation attached, as often happens in multi-finger caliper
presentation, the 3D imaging will also be included in the distributed files.
Basic knowledge in the use of the Warrior Plot Job Editor is required in order to assemble a plot job from which the distributable media
is created. Refer to the Warrior software manual
for more information on the use of the Warrior Plot Job Editor.

and click on More info when opening, then click on the "Run anyway" button to view the demo)
Warrior Control Panel
The Warrior Control Panel sets certain global characteristics of the Warrior system. The Warrior Control Panel
is started from its icon in the Warrior program group or via the Windows Program Menu. Warrior 8.0 now has several pages of information to
set up system configurations. The pages of the Warrior Control Panel are General, Acquisition, Plot, Hot Keys, Licenses, and Depth/ Tension.
Acquisition is the main logging or data acquisition subset of the Warrior system. It acquires data from the
hardware I/O devices, stores the raw data in the Warrior database and provides all the normal well logging functionality. When necessary,
it also automatically starts other Warrior programs to perform additional functions in an integrated manner. In the Warrior System group,
choose the Acquisition icon. (Double-click the icon,). Note SDS sets up the software to display a Warrior System group on the desktop.
However the program group is also available via the Start button.
The recalculation mode allows log data to be recalculated or relogged from raw data. Calibrations and other
acquisition parameters, such as filters and depth offsets, may be changed. The data monitors used during actual logging are available to
the operator during recalculation.
The Heading Editor allows the log heading information to be added to a blank heading of pre-existing format.
There are several different versions of default headings that can be produced using Warrior Software. The Heading Editor may be started
from several different locations including its icon in the Warrior program group,or in the Acquisition module under the Edit -> Heading,
and Interactive Plot under Edit -> Log Heading.
The Format Editor allows the creation and editing of the log presentation or format files. The output of the
format editor are files of the type *.prs which are subsequently used to control all aspects of plotting acquired data. The Format Editor
may be started in three different ways: From its icon in the Warrior program group, from the Edit menu of the Acquisition or Recalculation
modules, or from the Action menu of Interactive Plot. In addition, double-clicking in the scales area of the Interactive Plot window will
also start the Format Editor.
Interactive plot is used for the viewing and optional plotting of acquired data either recorded as depth or
time. Interactive plot is normally started from Acquisition by clicking on Action -> Record Up, or optionally Record Down or Record
on Time. How the data is presented is initially controlled by the presentation that has been selected for each separate service. Note
that even if interactive plot is closed that data continues to be acquired and recorded until the Action -> Stop command is invoked
Plot Job Editor
The Plot Job Editor is a program module, which enables the operator to assemble the various components
(heading, log sections, etc.) of a well log into its final presentation. The resultant plot job information is saved in a well log
database, usually alongside the log data. The Presentation Plot program uses the plot job information to create the graphical output
to a plotter or other graphics device (pdf,tiff, etc).
The Utilities icon in the Warrior Program Group allows access to several programs, some with general, and some with more specific, applications. The Warrior Database Utilities has six groups:
1.Data Export (LIS/LAS/ODBC/CSV Compatible files. Extract Passes to new Database. Export Database via Internet, etc..)
2.Interpretation Tools (XY Plot. Tracer Interpretation. Pipe Tally. Calculate Rxo/Rt/Rwa. Borehole Volume from caliper, etc..)
3.Setup Tools (Calibrate Printers/Plotters. Configuration Backup/Restore. Edit Logging Services, Tools details.)
4.Depth Correction (Apply Linear Depth Shift to a Dataset/Data Item)
5.Data Management (Delete Data from a Database, Undelete Data, Change name in Data items, Create Variables in a Dataset, Edit Log Curves, etc.. )
6.Data Import (Read ASCII/LIS/ODBC Data into Warrior databases. Create Log Format from Dataset. Import Warrior Database from via Internet.)
Merge/Splice, TVD Merge/Spice
The Wizard, Merge, Splice and TVD module allows data from one or more database files to be manipulated in the
depth domain and output to one or more destination files. Data may be depth adjusted and correlated, curves from multiple runs spliced
together, outputs renamed etc. The module also includes the capability to calculate True Vertical Depth (TVD) from directional survey data
and generate log data referenced to TVD for subsequent plotting and other operations. Most of the Merge program operations may be accomplished
with only one pass through the data.
The purpose of the Services Editor is to aid in modifying current services, creating new services, and
importing and exporting services from similar types of Warrior systems. To start the Service Editor, go to Warrior Utilities and
click on the Edit Logging Service Details.
The Service Editor.
When tools are run in a service (by editing the tool string for a particular service), they are chosen
by type and serial number. Each serial number is assigned to a specific tool model. Each model of tool has the information that the
Warrior System Software uses to process the data that it receives. This includes such general information as type of software, sensor
offsets, sensor filtering, and tool length (which effects the offsets of other sensors in the tool string). By using the tool editor,
the pertinent information for each model can be easily changed, new serial numbers created, and new models created. The Tool Editor can
be accessed from the Utilities Program in the Warrior Software Group Menu.
The Tool Editor.
A math pack output is created by a formula applied to one or more values from existing databases.A math pack
job consists of one or more math pack outputs. Each math pack job is saved in a file with the extension ".wmp". The Math Pack job file contains:
A presentation file name and scale. Each output name, output units, data id, sample rate, description, and the formula used to create the output.
The primary purpose of the Job Planner is to assist in the design and assembly of perforating strings and
help the user execute perforating and TCP jobs. For TCP jobs, the end result will be an inventory of all the items required to complete
your TCP string. For wireline jobs, you will have a list of all the runs you plan on making and the design of each tool string that goes
in the hole as well as a central launch point and job control that interacts with Acquisition and hardware such as Shooting Panels and
addressable perforating switches, it can be used to calculate "stop depths" and help prevent perforating out of zones. For either type
of job, you build every gun to your specifications, and then add all the other components required to complete the tool string.
Every computer system will, sooner or later, suffer a failure, like a disk crash, where potential loss of
programs and/or data is possible. This will generally happen at the most inconvenient time. The importance of keeping current backups
cannot be overemphasized. It is vital that current backups are kept of all essential programs and data.
The warrior system is usually configured for the selection of services to be run by a given client. This information is primarily contained
in three files, namely wproperties.ini, services.ini, and tools.ini. A copy of all your customized files can be backed up to USB Memory/Hard disk
by using "Configuration Backup/Restore" utility.
