Abstract
Vigilant monitoring for disease carrying insects in regions of military deployment is vital for identifying threats to the health of soldiers. The Army issued a request for an easily deployable, safe, and high performing human-baited tent trap that will allow military entomologists to measure the health threats present to troops with a high degree of confidence. The methods, models, and devices developed during the Phase I program will serve as a foundation to build the Phase II program upon. The program is structured as a spiral product development effort which involves the fabrication and testing of evolutionary prototype tent traps (as well as their sub-systems) both in the laboratory and in the field.
