Antenna arrays are considered as important type used today for long distance communication with a very high gain. The design of such antenna depends on parameters and desired behavior performing the task, this project handle the application of a new type of nature-inspired global optimization methodology in the design of an optimized planar antenna array which ensures minimum side lobes and high directivity, this new optimization method is based on the atmospheric motion and it is known as Wind Driven Optimization (WDO) a population based iterative heuristic global optimization algorithm technique for multi-dimensional and multi-modal problems with the potential to implement constraints on the search domain. The optimal values obtained results in a good suppression of the side lobe level for the different antenna configurations with several sorts of excitation: Amplitude only, phase only, both amplitude and phase. Besides, the directivity is not worse than that of the uniform one.
