The Secret Operation Raid Team (S.O.R.T.) was an espionage organization under the direct control of a certain nation's government.
S.O.R.T. was founded in 2001 by former members of the Tactical Reconnoitering and Acquisition Team (TRAT), who objected to apparent interference in operations by the military chiefs of staff. S.O.R.T. was instead built to answer directly to the government. Consequently, however, TRAT and S.O.R.T. developed an intense rivalry.
2009 Ibis Island incident Edit
The S.O.R.T. team dispatched a spy (Tom) to Ibis Island research center to monitor the research being conducted by the unknown organization stationed at the Island. He quickly discovers that a scientist who was thought to be dead was the lead researcher on the Island's base. He also discovered that the research being conducted was on something called Third Energy. The government, who where looking for a new clean cheap energy for the over populated world became immediately interested in the project. Fearing that Dr. Edward Kirk had faked his death to do independent research for his own gain, the government dispatched the S.O.R.T. team to capture him and gain vital information on the Third Energy project.

"ディランが所属するTRAT （Tactical Reconnoitering and Acquisition Team） とは、 陸軍の各部隊からとくに優秀な者のみを集めて組織された特殊部隊である。 秘密裏の要人救出や破壊工作など、不正規活動を中心とした任務が与えられるもっとも危険なチームではあるが、 ここにスカウトされること自体が軍人にとっては最高の名誉とされている。 しかしながら、 ２００１年当時のリーダーは、 あくまで軍という枠に縛られたTRATの限界を感じてチームを辞し、 政府直属の情報部という形でS.O.R.T.を設立。 こうした経緯から、 TRATとS.O.R.T.のあいだには強い対抗意識が存在しており、 当初はディランもレジーナに対して含むところがあったようだ。"
