The filing of the application is a non-provisional of and claims priority to U.S. Patent Application No. 62/387,789, filed January 6, 2016, which is incorporated by reference in its entirety. The patent is associated with systems that locate, track, and monitor the status of people and valuable objects generally utilize or incorporate known technology, including, for example, Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, inertial and non-inertial sensor devices, and signal analysis methods.
The non-provisional patent application was filed by the Company's patent attorney, Eric Lane of Green Patent Law (http://www.greenpatentlaw.com/) on November 7, 2016. The Company and its patent attorney are considering filling additional applications for non-PCT countries.

Any countries not on this list that the Company might be interested in would be filed with separately.

As such, we have decided to file a patent within the U.S and internationally," said Dr. Rittman. "Our main flagship product, the Guardian Patch, is based on a proprietary technology and therefore should be protected by us to the full extent available to us," added Michael D. Murray, the Company's CEO.
About Guardian Patch
The Guardian Patch (the "Patch"), potentially arriving in consumer markets in 2017, is a unique location technology that works with or without GPS. The Patch is a "stick-on" device that provides its users with the capability to protect and track objects, a loved-one or even a pet, through a mobile application. Download the Patch app, register your patch, and track anything that you own on your mobile device or on our designated website. Register the Patches of your family members and friends to receive alerts in the event of an emergency. Peel the Patch off and the Patch acts as a beacon, sending out a signal and notifying anyone who has registered the user's Patch.
