This paper outlines the development of a real-time interactive application for the analysis, training and programming of on-orbit servicing tasks within a virtual reality environment. The main challenges put on the system are the real-time simulation of the realistic dynamic and kinematic behavior of satellite components and additionally integrate interaction through a bimanual haptic interface, as well as enable tele-operation of a robot. We give an overview of the application, describe the real-time challenges and outline our approach and proposed system structure.
