An optimal design of a linear antenna array is presented. The antenna array is optimized using a particle swarm optimization based method in order to produce a radiation pattern that has the minimum possible side lobe level and the maximum possible gain at the desired direction. The method has been applied to collinear wire-dipole arrays and seems to be suitable for improving the radiation patterns in many practical applications.
