Deployed Warfighter Protection Program FY 16 Call For Research: The US Army Contracting Command, Aberdeen Proving Ground Natick Contracting Division, Fort Detrick invites applications for funding opportunities for the fiscal year 2016 Deployed War Fighter Protection Research Program (DWFP), renewable for up to 3 years, administered by the Armed Forces Pest Management Board (AFPMB).
The AFPMB is soliciting pre-proposals for original, innovative research designed to develop new interventions for protection of deployed military personnel from diseases caused by arthropod-borne pathogens and to improve control of filth flies. Diseases of significant concern include malaria, dengue fever, chikungunya fever, and other arboviruses. The program supports development of: (1) new toxicants or the adaptation of existing toxicants to relevant vectors; (2) new insecticide application techniques; and (3) new personal protection tools that prevent human-vector contact (excluding work on topical repellents). 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 sustainability of equipment for application of pesticides for vector control in a military operational environment. Research should be product oriented, consisting of basic or applied research related to a particular product, evaluation of experimental products for military uses, or research directed towards 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 $2,000,000 will be awarded this year (FY16), with future years subject to the availability of funds. Total proposed cost may not exceed $250,000 per year for up to 3 years, inclusive of direct and indirect costs. Approximately 8-12 awards are anticipated. Funding is intended to begin in April 2016. 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.

Pre-proposals 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 pre-proposal form is available at
Follow the directions on the form for submission to the AFPMB webmaster. This form should be submitted no later than 8 Jan 2016, 12:00 p.m. EST.

Other estimated timelines for the FY15 DWFP are as follows: invitation to submit Full Proposal to be sent by 1 Feb 2016; invited Full Proposal submission deadline will be approximately 15 Mar 2016, 12:00 p.m. EST; and Award Start Date approximately April 2016.
