Deployed War Fighter Protection From Disease-Carrying Insects: The United States Army Space and Missile Defense Command (USASMDC) invites applications for funding for the fiscal year 2005 Deployed War Fighter Protection Research Program (FY05 DWFP), renewable for up to 3 years, administered by the Armed Forces Pest Management Board (AFPMB). The AFPMB is soliciting proposals for original research designed to help protect the deployed military ground forces through control of insects that carry diseases of military significance (notably malaria, leishmaniasis and major arboviruses), with emphasis on the benefits of insecticides. 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 for personal protection from biting arthropods, or would improve the efficacy and safety of equipment for application of pesticides for public health vector control. Research must be product oriented and should focus on the following: development and evaluation of novel insecticides or presentations for adulticidal control of mosquitoes and other biting flies or filth flies; novel fabric treatments for military field uniforms, bednets and tents for protection against blood-feeding insects; innovative public health insecticide application technology and equipment. The research must be primarily applicable to the military but products should be transferable to civilian uses. It is anticipated that approximately $1.4 million will be awarded this year (FY05), 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, including direct and indirect costs. The maximum allowable limit for overhead costs is 28%. Approximately 6-7 awards are anticipated. Funding is anticipated to begin in January 2005. Projects will be selected on the basis of scientific merit determined by external peer review, 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). Estimated timelines for the FY05 DWFP are as follows: Preproposals Submission Deadline: October 16, 2004, 4:00 p.m. ET; Invited Full Proposals Submission Deadline: November 30, 2004, 4:00 p.m. ET; Peer Review: November/December 2004; Programmatic Review: January 2005; Award Start Date: Between January 2005 and February 2005.
