Demonstrate the first quantum key exchange between a CubeSat and ground.


In QUBEII, further developments are now performed subsequently to fully integrate all functional elements to build and launch a CubeSat, able to perform quantum key distribution. The demonstration of secure quantum key distribution between the QUBE-II satellite and a ground station on earth is expected to lay the foundation for global, secure communications with in particular, low resource requirements
