This paper briefly describes a six degree of freedom simulator code characteristics and the nSat-IE satellite structural configuration, which fulfills two missions: data recovery and to be a technology development workbench. Besides this, this simulator will be used as a tool in order to obtain and study the results from the spacecraft orbit behavior. Two orbit simulation cases will be of paramount importance to check the code operation. It will be introduced as well a 3D satellite model (in development stage) witch take data from the simulator code in order to visualize the satellite when orbiting the earth. This 3D model is being developed using OpenGL and it will be coupled to the simulator code.
