Biological Warfare Oriented Research

Biological Warfare Oriented Research

The U.S. Defence Department formerly had a number of projects operating in the South Pacific area collecting information on dispersal of disease by migratory birds, parasites, insects, winds etc. These projects were intended to evaluate the risks of biological ("germ") warfare agents being accidentally dispensed more widely than a future military commander might intend.
