The use of parallel technologies to solve complex scientific problems has gained increased popularity. The ray optical methods are deterministic propagation approaches that are based on geometrically searching paths between emitter and receivers. They offer higher accuracy than empirical models, but suffer from slow calculations on exhausted rays that have to be searched. In this paper, an object-oriented scheme based on POP-C++ for parallel objects to accelerate outdoor ray launching is described. Performance evaluation is presented to show that this parallel scheme is promising in outdoor wireless propagation modeling. The possibility of running this model in the distributed grid environment is also discussed. Results have shown the great potential of using such a parallel model to predict accurate outdoor wireless propagation scenarios within a short time.
