The Flash movie format will illustrate Search and Rescues (SAR's), Alien Migrant Interdiction Operations (AMIO) and Maritime Drug Interdictions in cooperation with OPBAT in the Bahamas and surrounding areas.

The SAR and AMIO picture is essential to understanding our multi-mission response ops and what really goes on around the Bahamas.

The United States Coast Guard Bahamas/U.S Embassy office has engaged the Houston web design firm, Advanced Web Site Publishing, to help them visually depict the amount and types of cases they have worked on in their region during the course of one year.

Commander Billburg of the U.S. Coast Guard states, "The SAR and AMIO picture is essential to understanding our multi-mission response ops and what really goes on around the Bahamas."

The Flash movie format will illustrate Search and Rescues (SAR's), Alien Migrant Interdiction Operations (AMIO) and Maritime Drug Interdictions in cooperation with OPBAT.

OPBAT is a combined Coast Guard, U.S. Army, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Bahamian operation. The operation incorporates assets and personnel from each entity to combat drug smuggling to and from The Bahamas. OPBAT is a helicopter oriented effort that uses Coast Guard and Army HH60 aircraft, manned with DEA and Bahamian law enforcement agents, to interdict drug smugglers using the Bahamas as a transit zone. OPBAT forces are commonly used against drug air drops to waiting go-fast style boats. Aircraft and crews are stationed at locations throughout the Bahamas and are tasked by a central OPBAT command center in Nassau.

The Flash based movie will illustrate the lives saved and assisted in this region. The final tally can also be viewed along with the total of:

  •      Amount of drugs seized
  •      Types of drugs seized
  •      Cash Seized
  •      Arrests Made
  •      Illegal Migrants Interdicted
  •      Flight Hours

Keith Hickman, President of Advanced Web Site Publishing stated, "We are very proud to be of assistance to the men and women who risk their lives to guard our countries borders. We will continue to work with the USCG and other government agencies that can use our expertise."
