The Cameron two-person work basket is designed for use during manually assisted stabbing operations and maintenance procedures to be performed on drilling equipment above the drill floor.

The work basket includes features such as interface with OnTrack integrated drilling controls system (warning only), proximity sensors to avoid collision, a personnel escape system, and emergency functions capable of lowering and slewing the basket. The work basket can be operated from a local panel mounted in the basket itself or from the remote control panel (location determined on a project-by-project basis).
