US Department of Defense: Deployed War Fighter Protection Programme

The US Department of Defense, via the Armed Forces Pest Management Board, invites pre-proposals for its deployed war fighter protection programme. This supports innovative research designed to develop new interventions for protection of deployed military personnel from diseases caused by arthropod-borne pathogens.

The following areas are of particular interest:

  • arthropod bite prevention technology for personal protection;
  • vector control application technology;
  • new active ingredients and formulations of public health pesticides.

Improvements should take into account user acceptability, portability, cost effectiveness, sustainability, labour requirements, system compatibility and entomological efficacy.
