Computational steering is a newly evolving paradigm for working with simulation models. It entails integration of model execution, observation and input data manipulation carried out concurrently in pursuit of rapid insight and goal achievement. Keys to effective computational steering include advanced visualization, high performance processing and intuitive user control. The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has been integrating facilities in its Virtual Reality Lab and High Performance Computing Center for application of computational steering to study effects of electromagnetic wave interactions using the HASP (High Accuracy Scattering and Propagation) modeling technique developed at NRL. We are also investigating automated inverse steering which involves incorporation of global optimization techniques to assist the user with tuning of parameter values to produce desired behaviors in complex models.
