Abstract:

In this report we summarize the technical progress accomplished during the first quarter of work of the SeaKey program. We describe our information theoretic work to define the performance bounds of QKD systems operating under ideal scenarios, and how those bounds guide our path forward for link design. We also describe our progress quantifying the non-idealities that will be encountered in a free-space optical FSO link operating in a marine environment.
