Moore's law states that computing performance doubles every 18 months. While this has held true for 40 years, it is widely believed that this will soon come to an end. Increases in performance coincide with decreases in scale on the computer platform. Dueto the small scale of computer components, both interference effects are starting to play a role in the development of new components. This implies that there is also a limit to how fast a classical computer can become. Quantum computation offers apotential solution to the eventual failure of Moore's law. Quantum computers are not constrained by the size issue related to classical computers. Researchers have already shown that efficient quantum algorithms exist and can perform some calculationssignificantly faster than classical computers. Quantum computers require very different algorithms than classical computers, so the challenge of quantum computation is to develop efficient quantum algorithms. Cybernet proposes to create a quantum imageprocessing toolkit that will serve as the foundation of quantum systems that perform important, low-level functions within the military (such as target tracking, video based navigation, etc.).
