"Requirements. Requirements. Who has the requirements?"
I've found success following around the trail of several organizations. The following is admittedly Air Force Centric. Please add your own favorite location to find traceable requirements to feed into acquisition programs and funding priorities:

Air Force TENCAP - from their website, "TENCAP uses a rapid-prototyping capability to conduct operational concept demonstrations with prototypes in the field within two years." From the National Security Space Roadmap. Provides rather detailed programmatic and technical detail on at least 7 TENCAP programs. July 1998.
