A multi-technology high performance computing system based on the Open Parallel Architecture Design Specification (OPADS) platform is being evaluated for use as a graphics engine for spherical scene projection. This system is designed to make available the massive quantities of real-time processing power needed to support complete real time scene generation and projection of complex dynamical maneuvers for applications such as scientific visualization and three dimensional database creation and interaction. A comparison is also provided between head mounted projection systems and walk-in spherical scene projection systems.
