A novel method based on the memetic algorithm for the design of multiple interference cancellations of a linear array antenna by phase-amplitude perturbations is proposed. The adaptive array antenna is capable of sensing the presence of interference sources and suppressing the interferences in the interfering directions. This technique can increase the signal-to-interference ratio. The memetic algorithm is applied to find the weighting vector which makes the pattern nulling optimization of the proposed adaptive antenna. This technique is also able to do the cancellation of multiple interferences for different incident directions.
