The Army Defense Health Program has a need for a novel freestanding device to sample and collect a broad spectrum of adult flying insects for the purpose of analyzing possible disease vectors. McQ proposes to develop a flying insect sampling device (FISDe) that utilizes a modular approach to allow the assembly of components necessary for the survey mission. This device will allow for the automatic counting and identification of flying insects along with autonomous reporting and aggregation of the survey data.
