The aim of this paper is to present a hybrid approach for designing focal plane arrays using commercially available software, considering the fact that the main trade-off in the EM simulation is the accuracy versus computational power. The presented approach is hybrid method based on FDTD/PO. The optimization process, based on the alternating projection algorithm and projection matrix method, is performed on the embedded element patterns in order to fit the gain of the complete system onto the pre-defined mask.
