Paper Abstract

Accurate remote clock synchronization is the backbone of applications such as high-accuracy satellite navigation, digital and/or cryptographic communication systems, space-based interferometric surveillance, coherent distributed-aperture sensing at high frequencies, and geolocation. During the last decade, several clock synchronization schemes have been proposed based on quantum mechanical concepts. Quantum clock synchronization promises more precision and better security. In this paper, the various proposed quantum clock synchronization schemes are reviewed. We compare and discuss several different quantum clock synchronization schemes. The advantages and disadvantages of these schemes are investigated with emphasis on the application in space-based satellite navigation systems.
