Program

Current version of the simulator program is 1.2.2 (May 2014).

Quantum based systems could be the next steps in improving satellite communications. The actual implementation of quantum cryptography systems would be invaluable, allowing for the first time the practical possibility of one-time-pad-encrypted, undecipherable communication, which will offer an essentially new degree of security in future satellite communications. They offer secure key distribution protocols, more efficient coding and communications methods than the classical solutions.

The Quantum Satellite Communication Simulator is a free software which is developed by the Department of Networked Systems and Services, Budapest University of Technology and Economics and the Institute of Informatics and Economics, University of West Hungary.

The aim of the silumator is the determination of Quantum Bit Error Rate (QBER) in different channel types (Earth-space, space-space, space-Earth), examination the used formulas, and simulation a quantum channel based network. The program has five mode: calculation by constant parameters, calculation by varying parameters, sensitivity analysis, time driven communication and optimizaion
