Radar and sonar information processing is a promising application area of quantum computing in the near future. Many use cases in this area can are computational heavy and might benefit greatly from a quantum approach. In this paper, an overview of use cases in this application area is given and scored on quantum readiness, added value and expected horizon. From this overview acoustic localisation, generative models, compressive sensing, normalisation and classification are selected as the most promising application areas.
