Branching measure-valued diffusion models are investigated that can be regarded as pairs of historical Brownian motions modified by a competitive interaction mechanism under which individuals from each population have their longevity or fertility adversely affected by collisions with individuals from the other population. For 3 or fewer spatial dimensions, such processes are constructed using a new fixed-point technique as the unique solution of a strong equation driven by another pair of more explicitly constructible measure-valued diffusions. This existence and uniqueness is used to establish well-posedness of the related martingale problem and hence the strong Markov property for solutions. Previous work of the authors has shown that in 4 or more dimensions models with the analogous definition do not exist.
