A synthesis method based on differential evolution algorithm is proposed for conformal antenna arrays in the presence of platform. With the desired phase weights determined by the scan angle and array geometry, the amplitude weights of elements are optimized by differential evolution algorithm to drive down the side-lobes. Both the effect of platform on radiation pattern of conformal array and the mutual coupling between the elements are taken into account by calculating the antenna array and platform simultaneously using the method of moment. Application of adaptive integral method reduces the storage and computation time needed by the method of moments.
