Warfighter Health, Performance and Evacuation PMO develops materiel solutions for vector surveillance and control and identification of infectious diseases. More accurate vector surveillance data reduce the risk of vector-borne disease to the warfighter and increase medical readiness and mission effectiveness. Among the products are the following:
- Long-Lasting Dual Insecticide-Impregnated Bed Net
- Field Deployable Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Generator
- Improved Vector Trap
- Next Generation Diagnostic System
Long-Lasting Dual Insecticide-Impregnated Bed Net
The insecticide-impregnated bed net is a portable, light-weight design constructed of a long-lasting mesh impregnated with two insecticides: permethrin and deltamethrin. It is packed in a small case that can be attached to a soldier's backpack.
Field Deployable Carbon Dioxide Generator
Military units use vector surveillance to evaluate the health risks that may be present due to disease-carrying insects, such as mosquitoes, ticks, and sand flies.
The field deployable CO2 generator provides a constant, reliable, safe, non-toxic, portable source of CO2 for vector surveillance efforts and safety/force protection through early disease detection and prevention.
