A hybrid spectral domain - UTD method (Uniform Theory of Diffraction) developed for the analysis of conformal antennas is presented in this paper. The basic idea behind the hybrid method is to combine different analysis methods for conformal antennas and, at the same time, preserve the advantages of the considered methods. More specifically, the considered hybrid SD - UTD method joins the possibility of analyzing multilayer structures (spectral domain method) and the possibility of analyzing electrically large structures (UTD method). Hence, using the developed method it is possible to analyze large multilayered conformal antennas with high accuracy and speed. This work has been made possible by the ACE program for structuring the research on conformal antennas in Europe. The developed method is a result of joining research activities of University of Zagreb, Croatia and the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden.
