I was wondering, Can you use space engine as a real time tracking device for objects in space and earth orbit?

Let’s say for example NASA used this to track satellites and inserted tracking device and sensors in space suits to know where people were in space.

Sadly no. This would require something to read and convert orbital elements to positions in SE, and accurate calculation of orbital propagation, neither of which SE does yet.

There is other free software you can use for that purpose though, for example Orbitron, or websites like heavens-above or calsky.
