This is the 2nd quarterly Technical Progress Report summarizing progress on the Sea-optimized Quantum Key Exchange SeaQuaKE project, which is led by Applied Communications Sciences under the ONR Free Space Optical Quantum Key Distribution Special Notice 13-SN-0004 under ONRBAA13-001. In this technical report, we describe details of the hyperentanglement source architecture we propose for use in a maritime quantum communications system, including some of the wavelength-dependent considerations for technologies needed to construct such sources. In addition, we discuss initial simulation results using MODTRAN to model atmospheric transmission loss as a function of wavelength under a range of visibility conditions and aerosol model scenarios.
