The design of electrically large antennas can be a significant challenge for computational electromagnetics (CEM) tools, particularly during the final stages of the design process where there are strict requirements for the accuracy. In the present paper, we consider the use of a newly developed accelerated Physical Optics (Fast-PO) and show that this approach allows for a timely and accurate solution of realistic designs. Several examples, ranging from canonical tests of the scaling of the method against the wavelength to real-life applications, illustrate the performance of the approach in practice.
