We describe the software toolbox SORTS++ which is the next-generation Space Object Radar Tracking Simulator (SORTS). This toolbox is able to simulate general Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST) applications from catalogue maintenance to cold-start performance for radar systems or collections of radar systems. We have applied this toolbox to the EISCAT 3D radar system, currently under construction, to optimize observation strategies and predict the SST capabilities of the system. We present the final results of this study and illustrate the versatility and capability of the developed toolbox.
