1990 – 2015
OSI served Government and Private Sector for 25 Years before operational evolution gave way to the Applied Scientific Technology Advance at Intelligent Social Media, LLC (ISM). This site serves as a reminder of the threats and risks that have always been with us and a journal to the many accomplishments and historical events that became part of the pedigree that now defines the OSI – ISM Legacy. Thank you to the many who made these years, operations, investigations and accolades possible!
OSI was known for it’s expertise in Intelligence, LE Special Operations and the advance and development of technology initiatives for government and private security operations.

OSI was best known for it’s CQBRS (Close Quarters Battle, Reconnaissance & Surveillance) Program in the early days and then quiet, but recognized service in support of Hurricane Katrina Operations, which in time gave rise to the OP-V Program.
