The idea of using chaos for data and signal transmission is certainly not new and the highly unpredictable and random-look nature of chaotic signal is the most attractive feature of deterministic chaotic system that may be useful for novel engineering application.
As indicated earlier, a deterministic chaotic system is, in some respects, polar to an instantaneously unpredictable system.
What I will operationally define as true randomness in an otherwise deterministic chaotic system can come about when the Heisenberg uncertainty principle prevents the initial variables of the system from being measured with sufficient accuracy for the evolution of the system to be predictably repeated.
