The objective of this study aims at using the Matlab-Simulink environment and the LabVIEW software environment to build computer models of a six-dimensional (6D) chaotic dynamic system. For the fixed system’s parameters, the spectrum of Lyapunov exponents and the Kaplan-York dimension are calculated. The presence of two positive Lyapunov exponents demonstrates the hyperchaotic behavior of the system. The fractional Kaplan-York dimension indicates the fractal structure of strange attractors. An active control method is extended to achieve global chaotic synchronization of two identical novel 6D chaotic systems with unknown system parameters. Based on the results obtained in Matlab-Simulink and LabVIEW models, a chaotic signal generator for the 6D chaotic system is implemented in the MultiSim environment. The experimental results show that the chaotic behavior simulation in the MultiSim environment is similar to those in the Matlab-Simulink and LabVIEW models. The simulation results demonstrate that the Pecora-Carroll method is a simple way of chaotic masking and signal decoding.
