7/18/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to design, construct, and test two new dust collection components for continuous mining operations in underground coal mines.
7/18/2016 - Interagency agreementsAn interagency agreement to conduct experiments to improve the efficiency and speed of drilling operations and develop robots and robotic assist technology.
7/21/2015 - Unpublished documents and reportsA feature story about new equipment and protocol for drilling large-diameter rescue boreholes.
2/1/2015 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA paper detailing the use of a bit sleeve in combination with a dusthog-type bit to improve dust extraction during the critical initial phase of drilling.
8/15/2014 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to identify equipment needs, available contractors, and the development and demonstration process for a rapid response drilling system for mine rescue operations.
Directional Control-Response Compatibility Relationships Assessed by Physical Simulation of an Underground Bolting Machine3/1/2014 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA study conducted to examine the pattern of direction errors made during the manipulation of a physical simulation of an underground coal mine bolting machine to assess directional control-response compatibility relationships.
2/1/2013 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn experiment was conducted to explore coding and directional compatibility on roof bolting equipment and to determine the feasibility of a visual feedback system to alert operators of critical movements and workers in close proximity to the equipment.
