A technique is proposed to extract system requirements for a maritime area surveillance system, based on an activity recognition framework originally intended for the characterisation, prediction and recognition of intentional actions for threat recognition. To illustrate its utility, a single use case is used in conjunction with the framework to solicit surveillance system requirements.
