Atmospheric turbulence is the number one enemy of amateurs and not so amateurs in astronomical observation. The tinkling of images when viewing celestial bodies in our solar system, or the impossibility of accurately glimpsing galaxies in the deep sky is due to atmospheric "seeing", among other things. Moreover, it is not only those interested in observing that are affected by this phenomenon, but in the near future, where optical communications will be responsible for linking ground stations and satellites, they will also be penalised by atmospheric turbulence. This is the reason for the emergence of this project, for the study in simulation of atmospheric "Seeing". How it affects telescopes, analysing optical aberrations and their correction by means of Zernike Polynomials and, on the other hand, how to calculate the attenuation introduced by the atmosphere in the communications channel with satellites. Addressing basic principles in optics, the aim is to simulate all the necessary factors for the interest of two research groups within SENER Aerospace, S.A. and the Telecommunications Technology Centre of Catalonia (CTTC), and to conclude this project in two applications developed in MATLAB® programming software and its App Designer design tool, for future interested parties to receive in advance the simulated situation of the turbulence conditions at the study site. This project has been taken to different congresses, online and in person, in order to teach the knowledge acquired in the development of this year's project, such as the International OSA Network of Students (IONS), the National Optics Meeting (RNO), the 4th Symposium on Space Education Activities (SSEA) and The European Society for Engineering Education (SEFI).
