This paper presents an efficient hybrid method for analyzing scattering/radiation from electrically large arrays in the vicinity of nearby obstacles. Electrically large arrays are widely used in several applications such as radars, remote sensing systems, and modern communication systems. In general, these arrays radiate in the presence of nearby obstacles, such as an array on a mast. The proposed approach is based on the combination of a ray-field representation of the field radiated by electrically large arrays and a DFT (Discrete Fourier Transform) representation of nonuniform array current distribution. Realistic array current distributions are nonuniform even if the array is excited uniformly due to coupling among the array elements and coupling between array and scattering objects. DFT employment for expressing nonuniform array current distribution is a robust approach, since, for practical array current distributions most of the DFT coefficients are close to zero, except for a few significant terms.
