SaVi is software created at the Geometry Center at the University of Minnesota for the visualization and analysis of satellite constellations. It has a graphical user interface which includes the following features:

We have generated SaVi simulations for several commercial constellations (Globalstar, Iridium, Teledesic). Images from SaVi have appeared in various national media.

[NEW] You can now view and manipulate satellite constellations using The Geometry Center's JGV 3-D visualization Java applet.
