Abstract ~ecause ofthe near ubiquitous communica-
tion available to network nodes beneath a satellites foot-
print, satellite network technology has enjoyed a recent
and substantial increase in interest from academia, gov-
ernment, and commercial sectors. However, the benefit
resulting from being beneath the satellite footprint comes
at the cost ofa substantial propogation delay, as well as
other challenging network characteristics. To study net-
working over satellites, researchers need a network sim-
ulation tool that is capable ofmodeling existing and pro-
posed satellite networks. This paper addresses the net-
work modeling problem by adding an open source satellite
mobility model (SatMob) suitable for Low/Medium Earth
Orbit (LEO/MEO) satellites to Qualnet network simula-
tion tool. We perform a basic set ofexperiments commonly
found in network research by using an existing mobility
