An enhanced multi-pronged technology transfer approach will be designed to communicate the results of the SERDP lead free projects to various stake-holders and to enable standardization. The work products and transferred data must not be technical information, whose export is governed by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations ITAR. The DoD may choose to have separate ITAR information transfer if they deem it necessary to convey key issues to select audiences. The following novel transfer methods are planned 1 Develop tailored Lead-free webinars for the Program Management and Systems Engineering. These webinars target interconnect reliability and whisker risk to the needs of the weapon system program managers. Examples of risk will be given and information will be provided on where to access more detailed technical support. 2 Transfer of the whisker risk modeling developed under WP1753, including tutorials on the Whisker Risk Tool and the spreadsheet calculator, to the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering CALCE. 3 Exchange information and results from the SERDP and ESTCP lead-free effort with the IPCPERM working groups.
