Quantum communications offer an unprecedented level of privacy. However, long-distance terrestrial quantum communications currently rely on national trusted nodes, inadequate for international links. The alternative is satellite quantum communication, a technology of crucial strategic importance for Portugal, given its continental location and its archipelagos in the Atlantic.
To take this first step, project QuantSat-PT brings together a unique and multidisciplinary team, featuring complementary expertise from the following IT research groups: Physics of Information and Quantum Technologies, Network Architecture and Protocols, Antennas and Propagation and Optical Networking.
