Quantum computing is gaining more and more interest from the aerospace community. In particular NASA, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, etc. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) investigates near-term quantum computing devices with respect to their applicability for aerospace research. Our research includes the identification of use cases as well as the development of algorithms and software for near-term quantum computers. We will report on our recent efforts to solve hard planning and scheduling problems from aerospace research with near term quantum computers.
