Mr. Tom and all

I recently came to know that Mr. Tom integrated LEO satellite simulation code with the ns simulator (ns-2). And then Lloyd Wood improved it.

Long back, I experimented with your scripts - it was the only solution for simulating satellite network at that time.

My Question is:
Is there any possibility to integrate  SaVi (satellite constellation visualization) with ns-3?

I mean, is there any way to use SaVi as a visualization tool to visualize 3D Satellite network Simulations of ns-3?

Is there any other 3D tool that can be used along with ns-3 to visualize Satellite Networks?

I don't see any fundamental reason why SaVi could not be used with ns-3,
but I'm not aware of such work.

I do not have any experience with the below, but recently learned about
it; it uses a visualization tool called 'satviz' instead of savi.
