DOD Funding of Animal Cruelty 2005:
M5: Human Systems Technology - 1

Title: Effects of 94 GHz Radiofrequency Radiation on Non-Human Primate Visual Performance

Research Category: M5: Human Systems Technology

FY: 2005 Funding (in dollars): $220,000

Responsible Organization: AIR FORCE RESEARCH LAB/BROOKS
Primary Contact: Air Force Research Laboratory
City: Brooks City-Base
State: TX
Zip: 78235-5116


Objective: The objective of this project is to conduct experiments to evaluate the bioeffects of 94 GHz millimeter wave exposure in support of the Active Denial System (ADS).

Approach: The project proposed here will evaluate vision and aversion in nonhuman primates (NHPs)before and after low-level 94 GHz radiation exposures. The objective of this two-year project are to quantify any temporary loss of visual capability of low-level ADS exposure of the eye. NHPs will be trained to produce contrast sensitivity functions by performing a food motivated operant task. 

Research was conducted in compliance with the Animal Welfare Act and other Federal statutes and regulations relating to the use of animals in research and was reviewed and approved by the Institute's Animal Care and Use Committee.

Rats, mice, birds, amphibians and other animals have been excluded from coverage by the Animal Welfare Act. Therefore research facility reports do not include these animals. As a result of this situation, a blank report, or one with few animals listed, does not mean that a facility has not performed experiments on non-reportable animals. A blank form does mean that the facility in question has not used covered animals (primates, dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, pigs, sheep, goats, etc.). Rats and mice alone are believed to comprise over 90% of the animals used in experimentation. Therefore the majority of animals used at research facilities are not even counted.
