Abstract : This report details the results of researching and evaluating massively parallel architectures and visualization techniques. The main focus of this project was to evaluate and determine the potential of parallel computing systems for visual simulation applications, such as distributed interactive simulation, scene generation, visualization and others. This report summarizes results of our performance tests; describes scenarios and architectures that exploit parallel processors for visual simulation applications; discusses the state of the parallel computing industry; and presents recommendations for further research and development. Furthermore, this document describes a prototype toolkit to explore various options for using parallel processors for visual simulation.
