The integrated computational environment has remained some sort of a unicorn since it was first postulated in the 1960’s. Some of the most important components to these environments are used in their own stand alone systems such as problem solving environments, model integration frameworks, and virtual environments. Characteristics of these systems have been identified creating a checklist upon which these and other environments can be compared in order to determine the actuality of integrated computational environment. Finally, the future of integrated computational environments are discussed including the ancillary components that will soon be included that create a complete design envelope within one single virtual space.

This is a preprint of a proceeding from the 51st AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting, doi:10.2514/6.2013-285.
