Coast Guard Benefits from Houston Company

Wednesday, November 02, 2005
In an ongoing effort to develop the fastest and most efficient response to emergency situations, the United States Coast Guard contracts with Houston-based Advanced Web Site Publishing (AWSP) to establish a technological birds eye view of performance during an emergency response situation - establishing a first of its kind interactive, online response Flash movie. This newly developed “flash movie,” accessible from the US Coast Guard Website, incorporates pages of Hurricane Katrina path charting, time lines, and the movement of multiple Coast Guard helicopters dispatched from stations across the United States during the disaster in an interactive overview – complete with pause and replay features. The movie, which depicts the movement of H-60’s and H-65’ helicopters from August 28 to September 3, 2005, was uniquely designed by the Advanced Web Site Publishing design team to aid Coast Guard officials in more accurately assessing performance during the recent disaster and address areas of vulnerability that would otherwise be difficult to identify. Coast Guard officials say they are “very pleased with the results and realistic depiction of the coast guard helicopters dispatched during Hurricane Katrina ” and believe the program serves as a valuable tool that will aide in future emergency response planning. Advanced Web Site Publishing had just recently created the Coast Guard Air Station Houston Website as well. Keith Hickman, President of AWSP stated, “We are proud to be a part of something so valuable to an organization that has such importance to our country. This was an intriguing project that pulled volumes of data, often difficult for the average person to decipher, into a concise format easy to assess at a glance.”
