DoD Pest/Vector Research Programs

 Deployed Warfighter Protection Program (DWFP)
The Deployed Warfighter Protection (DWFP) program is an initiative to develop and validate novel methods to protect United States Military personnel from threats posed by disease-carrying arthropods, including mosquitoes and ticks. Established in 2004 and administered by the Armed Forces Pest Management Board (AFPMB), the program is funded at approx. $5M per year. The DWFP research portfolio focuses on 3 specific areas: novel insecticide chemistries and formulations, new application technologies, and personal bite prevention methods. An annual directed solicitation is released in October of every fiscal year. For more information on pre-proposals and proposals, please see the DWFP Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) below.

DoD Environmental Research Programs
Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP)and the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) are the Department of Defense's environmental research programs, harnessing the latest science and technology to improve DoD’s environmental performance, reduce costs, and enhance and sustain mission capabilities. The Programs respond to environmental technology requirements that are common to all of the military Services, complementing the Services’ research programs. SERDP and ESTCP promote partnerships and collaboration among academia, industry, the military Services, and other Federal agencies. They are independent programs managed from a joint office to coordinate the full spectrum of efforts, from basic and applied research to field demonstration and validation.
