From the middle of March 2020, the Defense Technology Innovation Program LLC (DTIP) pivoted from our traditional role of innovation scouting on behalf of the Pentagon to assisting in the provision of urgently needed medical supplies and PPE to help governments and private healthcare providers address this current pandemic crisis.

To date, together with our networks of suppliers, the DTIP has arranged to have shipped millions of masks, gloves, gowns, and face shields to hospital networks in the United States and abroad. We are working long hours every day at the present time to address this pressing need and to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Our singular goal is to help save lives.

If your program is in need of PPE — Masks (KN95s, NIOSH N95s, 3M 1860 N95s, FFP3/N99, KN95/FFP2), Nitril Gloves, Gowns, Face Shields, and Hand Sanitizer as well as COVID-19 Test Kits, among other items. Depending on the product specified, volumes/MOQ ranges from 40,000 each to hundreds of millions (based on volumes already shipped to date).

We have been supporting government and private sector purchasers in this time of crisis. We are standing by to assist.

Please email directly to the DTIP’s Deputy Director, Nino Marcantonio, at and we will do our utmost to answer your requirements.

Thank you.
