In this paper we present a new approach for the synthesis and optimization of linear and planar microsrip antennas array. This proposed technique is based on the Minimax method which allows to seek the law of optimal feed and the space distribution of the radiant elements so that the synthesized diagram is closed as possible as an optimal desired diagram, defined by a function or a pattern shape. Simulation results show a significant reduction of side lobes level and the close-up of the radiant diagram to the imposed functions either the Gaussian or the pattern shape.
