Senior representatives from the CSA and industrial partners witnessed a successful laboratory demonstration.

On January 29, 2015, a team led by Professor Thomas Jennewein at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) completed a successful laboratory demonstration of a form, fit and function prototype of a Quantum Key Distribution Receiver (QKDR) suitable for airborne experiments and ultimately Earth orbiting satellite missions. The team designed and built the QKDR under a $600,000 contract from the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
