Technologies for communications, navigation and surveillance are emerging at an astonishing rate. Keeping up with the changes in technology is a full time effort; efficiently applying technology to satisfy the needs of aviation users is another effort entirely. This paper describes a methodology currently seeing limited use by the Federal Aviation Administration to identify current and future weather and surveillance system needs and to extend the use of this needs information to a process of technical requirements definition. The methodology can be used to: identify user needs in a manner that facilitates the selection of technology, (2) translate user needs into operational and technical requirements, and (3) `match' system technological capabilities to the identified needs and requirements of aviation users. This methodology permits system engineers to optimize benefits attained from the infusion of new capabilities into today's National Airspace System by capitalizing on technologies appropriate to user decision making.
