2009 Deployed War fighter Protection Research Program: The United States Army Space and Missile Defense Command (USASMDC) invites applications for funding for the fiscal year 2009 Deployed War Fighter Protection Research Program (FY09 DWFP), renewable for up to 3 years, administered by the Armed Forces Pest Management Board (AFPMB). The AFPMB is soliciting proposals for original, innovative research designed to develop new interventions for protection of deployed military personnel from diseases caused by arthropod-borne pathogens. Diseases of significant concern include malaria, leishmaniasis, dengue fever, and other arboviruses. The program supports development of new toxicants or the adaptation of existing toxicants to relevant vectors; development of new insecticide application techniques; and new personal protection systems. Ideally the research would support the development, evaluation, and registration of new insecticides, or improved formulations of existing insecticides for vector control, new technology or enhanced modalities of personal protection from biting arthropods, or would improve the efficacy and safety of equipment for application of pesticides for public health vector control in a military operational environment. Research must be product oriented, consisting of basic research leading to a particular product, evaluation of experimental products for military uses, or development of an existing product for commercial manufacture. The research must be primarily applicable to the military but products should be transferable to civilian uses. It is anticipated that approximately $500,000 will be awarded this year (FY09), with future years subject to the availability of funds. Proposals may not exceed a total cost of $250,000 per year for up to 3 years, inclusive of direct and indirect costs. Approximately 3-5 awards are anticipated. Funding is intended to begin in March 2009. Projects will be selected on the basis of peer-reviewed scientific merit and programmatic relevance determined by an Armed Forces Pest Management Board Integrated Process Team. Preproposals will be accepted from investigators who are employed by or affiliated with an eligible institution. Eligible institutions include for-profit, non-profit, public, and private organizations in any country. Examples include academic establishments (universities, colleges), hospitals, laboratories, companies, and agencies of local, state, and federal government (with the exception of USDA investigators for whom DWFP funding arrangements are made separately by inter-Agency agreement.) The preproposal form is available at http://www.afpmb.org/docs/preproposal.doc. This form should be submitted no later than 20 November 2008, 4:00 p.m. EST. Other estimated timelines for the FY09 DWFP are as follows: invited Full Proposals submission deadline will be no later than 5 January 2009, 4:00 p.m. EST, and Award Start Date should be between February 2009 and March 2009. For all additional information or questions, please contact Sandra OConnell, Contract Specialist/Grants Officer, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command, 64 Thomas Johnson Drive, Frederick, MD 21702.
