Quantum Communications on planetary scale envisage applications of global cryptographic key distribution as well as of fundamental tests in Quantum Mechanics. The exchange of a generic qubits indeed opens to the paradigms of Quantum Information the very large scale offered by the space missions. The realization of space Quantum Communications requires the realization of a measure of a quantum state using a telescope—Bob—that is receiving along a channel with a transmitter—Alice—in orbit. The most intuitive approach for coding the qubits is the polarization of single photons or of coherent states with Poisson parameter of the order of one. The effective measurement is possible only after the implementation of three different class of selection in the detection process: spectral, temporal and on the spatial modes. We will address the experimental studies on the faithful transmission of qubits from Space to ground and demonstrates the means for realizing Quantum Communications on these channels from LEO and MEO as well using different degrees of freedom of the photons.
