Quantum computing has been a relatively new research area in the physics and computer engineering combined fields since Feynman proposed an abstract model of quantum computer in 1980s. After Shor presented the algorithm for practical implementation of quantum computing in 1994, the research of quantum computing has grown quickly. However, there is a gap between the academic research and the application to industry. This survey paper attempts to fill the gap by presenting the application to the industrial needs specifically to the needs of the aerospace industry.
