The Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the Joint Defense Manufacturing Technology Panel sponsored this Lead Free (Pb-Free) Electronics Manhattan Project in response to the very serious challenges for both the Military and Defense Industries to produce reliable hardware given the current climate within the electronics industry in regards to lead (Pb) free electronics manufacturing.
The cumulative effect of avoiding the issues associated with the transition to Pb-free electronics by the commercial world can be problematic for Navy and Military war-fighter programs that rely on the performance and reliability of Mission Critical Hardware. The Navy recognized that a collective endeavor by the most knowledgeable and credible participants in this project would be a first step in coalescing, organizing – and more importantly – identifying current practices in an attempt to separate relevant and factual information from the anecdotal or often misinterpreted data.
Book 1 of the Pb-Free Electronics Manhattan Project documents the current best aerospace and defense (A&D) industry practices to deal with the multiple technical and business issues from the commercial industry transition to Pb-free electronics. The set of Pb-free electronics best practices contained in book 1 constitute the current baseline practices as determined by the assembled team of nationally-recognized subject matter expert scientists and engineers. Known issues with the current baseline practices and technical gaps are also identified in book 1.
