DSIAC is looking for FOD barrier technologies to support the Innovation and Modernization Pax and Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division.  Such barriers must only permit debris to leave the designated area but not return.  Proposed physical barriers would be used on the edge of a runway or taxiway that would allow wind or engine exhaust to blow FOD off the prepared surface edge but prevent it from traveling back onto the surface.
