S.O.N.G. (short for "Squad of Nexus Guardians"), formerly Section Two (二課 Nika?) of the Special Disaster Response Team (特異災害対策機動部 Tokui Saigai Taisaku Kidōbu?, lit. "Singular Disaster Response Mobility Department"), is an organization commanded by Genjuro Kazanari.
The Special Disaster Response Team is a governmental organization created to deal with the Noise. It has two distinct sections. Section One handles evacuations from the Noise, diverting and distracting Noise, and cleaning up wreckage afterwards. Section Two functions similarly, but with the addition of controlling confidential information, and possessing the Symphogear system, which allows them to engage in combat missions against the Noise.
Section Two was established ten years prior to the series. Before that, during World War II, its predecessor was the Kazanari Agency, an organization founded by ex-military forces that was the birthplace of anti-Noise research.
Section Two was initially commanded by Fudo Kazanari. However, Fudo stepped down from his position after the mysterious disappearance of the second classified relic, Ichaival, when it was stolen by Finé during construction of the headquarters. Genjuro then took his place as commander.
Following the elimination of the Noise and the space shuttle rescue. With the Noise now eliminated, and due to the existence of Symphogear now being known to the world, Section Two of the Special Disaster Response Team has been given a new mission, and therefore a new designation. Where before they fought the Noise while keeping their existence a secret to all but the highest-ranking members of the government, they are now a public organization that has the duty of assisting in disasters around the world that are too great for regular humans to overcome.
Due Hibiki's use of an "unknown weapon" which hasn't been approved by the Japanese government, they put put S.O.N.G. under inspection.
