To provide new disruptive means to perform computations with increased complexity, high-performance computing (HPC) will need a radical departure from the conventional classical computing platform. Quantum computing (QC), which makes use of the unusual physical properties of microscopic objects to process information, is a particularly promising candidate to be this disruptive technology for a range of computational problems. There is growing evidence that quantum information science (QIS) in general and QC in particular are approaching an inflection point, with significant opportunities and challenges for various scientific and engineering fields. In the fields of aeroscience and engineering, there are important implications for various national missions and responsibilities, including mission planning, autonomy, air space management, and material design and advancing current HPC applications such as computational materials research, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), combustion, aerothermodynamics, and multidisciplinary design and optimization (MDAO).
