For some time, work has been continuing within the U.S.A. on a "Technology Roadmap for the Superconducting Electronics Industry". A similar roadmap exercise is underway in Europe, and in Japan, recently announced research projects in superconductivity involved a detailed planning process. However, the U.S. Roadmap is not complete, and a consensus of industry opinion has not yet been reached on its recommendations. This manuscript should be regarded as a distillation of inputs from many sources, heavily weighted with the author's own prejudices. He suggests that a system level view of superconducting electronics technology should lead to revisions of today's research priorities. In particular, the importance of the cryocooler and cryopackage in each system has broad implications, even affecting the directions of materials and device research.
