2 CURRENT EQUIPMENT EVALUATION PROJECTS AT THE NAVY ENTOMOLOGICAL CENTER OF EXCELLENCE (NECE) TODD W. WALKER NAVY CENTER OF EXCELLENCE (NECE) BLDG. 937 CHILD ST., NAS JAX JACKSONVILLE, FL (904)

3 NECE OPERATIONAL SERVICES TESTING & EVALUATION  CONDUCT TESTING AND EVALUATION OF NEW PEST CONTROL EQUIPMENT, PESTICIDES, AND CONTROL STRATEGIES FOR MILITARY SUITABILITY.  PROVIDE EFFICACY MEASUREMENTS AS IT RELATES TO PESTICIDE DISPERSAL EQUIPMENT FOR SPECIFIC PEST CONTROL SITUATIONS.  PROVIDE CALIBRATION AND OPERATIONAL & PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE OF PESTICIDE DISPERSAL EQUIPMENT.

4 BACKGROUND  IN THE LAST 20 YEARS, THE THREAT OF VECTOR-BORNE DISEASES TO DEPLOYED TROOPS HAS INCREASED.  OIF BROUGHT HOME THE INADEQUACIES OF CURRENT VECTOR CONTROL TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES CASES OF LEISHMANIASIS.  DoD ESTABLISHED A NEW RESEARCH FUNDING PROGRAM (DEPLOYED WAR FIGHTERS PROTECTION).

5 T&E PROJECTS  EQUIPMENT EVALUATION FOR THE AFPMB. –LARVASONIC SD 200I – ONGOING. –TURBAIR ELECTRAFAN 12 – NSN DEIGNED. –BIRCHMEIER IRIS KNAPSACK SPRAYER – NSN APPROVED. –THERMAL FOG APPLICATION EQUIP. EVALUATION – RESULTS BEING ANALYZED. –ELECTROLON TM BP-2.5 ELECTROSTATIC SPRAYER – EVAL. PENDING.  DWFP Program –YAMAHA RMAX UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE (UAV) – POTENTIAL MILITARY USE. –ALTERNATE FUEL BACKPACK SPRAYER – POTENTIAL MILITARY USE. –DROPLET ANALYSIS OF HAND-HELD AND TRUCK-MOUNTED ULV & THERMAL FOG APPLICATION EQUIPMENT – DATA IN PUBLICATION.

6 EQUIPMENT EVALUATION FOR THE AFPMB  LARVASONIC SD 2001 – EVALUATION DONE IN CONJUNCTION W/ JAX MCD & USDA CMAVE. –PELIMINARY STUDIES SHOW POTENTIAL FOR MILITARY USE. –EVALUATION ONGOING.

7 EQUIPMENT EVALUATION FOR THE AFPMB  TURBAIR ELECTRAFAN 12 –TO REPLACE THE ULVAFAN MK2 (VMD 63 & 92 um)* –EVAL. DONE IN CONJUNCTION W/ USDA USDA AERIAL APPLICATION TECHNOLOGY. – NSN DEIGNED (VMD 47 & 84 um). ELECTRAFEAN 12 ULVAFAN MK2 * 0.1% TRITON X & BVA 13, RESPECTIVELY.

8 EQUIPMENT EVALUATION FOR THE AFPMB  BIRCHMEIER IRIS KNAPSACK SPRAYER –MARINES USE IT FOR PERMETHRIN TREATMENT OF UNIFORMS. –NSN

9 EQUIPMENT EVALUATION FOR THE AFPMB  ELECTROLON BP-2.5 TM –ELECTROSTATIC SPRAYER. –COMPATIBLE W/ THE TERMINATOR. –EVALUATION PENDING. –EVALUATION WILL BE DONE IN CONJUNCTION W/ CMAVE.

10 DWFP PROPGRAM  YAMAHA RMAX UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICAL (UAV) –EVALUATION DONE IN CONJUNCTION W/ THE USAF Aerial Spray Flight (910 AW, Vienna, OH) & USAF ROBOTIC LAB. –POTENTIAL MILITARY USE.

11 DWFP PROGRAM  ALTERNATE FUEL BACKPACK SPRAYER –MANUFACTURER: DORENDORF, INC., WINNEBAGO, MN. –ANASTASIA MCD ASSISTED W/ THE BIOASSAY EVAL. –POTENTIAL FOR MILITARY USE. JQSX
