    The U.S. Army Medical Materiel Development Activity's Warfighter Expeditionary Medicine and Treatment Project Management Office is involved in the DOD's effort to produce N95 respirators. Shown here are various prototypes of N95 masks that have been considered for production. These particular examples are elastomeric half-mask respirators, which have a reusable frame produced by a 3D printer, with a disposable media or cartridge that filters at the 95-percent level. The three masks on the right are early prototypes, while the two on the left are currently in the test and evaluation phase of development (Photo by Jeffrey Soares, USAMMDA public affairs)
