The main aim of this paper is to generate low sidelobe radiation patterns from array of horizontal dipole arrays embedded in different dielectric of different slab thickness using evolutionary algorithm Genetic Algorithm (GA) to make them suitable for high resolution radars, point to point communication and low EMI applications. Array element amplitude excitations are optimized using GA for horizontal dipole arrays embedded in alumina dielectric material with and without ground plane is considered.
