This paper describes guidance for assessing human factors risks of research capabilities. The risk scales in the present study were used to assess concepts of the FAA Target System Description, part of the National Airspace System architecture. Results help identify areas where human factors analyses are needed and strengthen the business case for human factors assessments. Repeated high risk ratings provide R&D managers with additional information about whether or not to proceed with specific capabilities.
