About SOS Systems, LLC
On December 4th, 2016, Butler, Missouri residents Lance E Sargent and Justin M Osburn had the very first conversation about a security product that would enhance current ALICE Training in active shooter school situations. Lance, who is currently a Nevada High School Teacher recently participated in ALICE Training and wanted to design a product which eliminated human resource from securing interior school doors.
After looking over the concept, both men initiated patent protection and an extensive patent search. Shortly after that, Lance and Justin formed Sargent and Osburn Security Systems, LLC DBA SOS Systems, LLC and initiated a TradeMark on their prized product naming it “The Guardian Angel: Securing the Innocent”. The two men decided to do a field test and video recorded the deployment of the device. The video was then put on Facebook for feedback and received over 5,000 views in a few short days. Toward the middle of February, the most recent prototype was completed (6th Generation). A local radio show picked up the story and Justin and Lance also found consultation from the SCORE program, a derivative of the Small Business Association. The product is scheduled to go to market in early March 2016.
