A method for the geometry synthesis of a linear array is presented. We start from an initial array with quantized amplitudes. After this, we perturb the element positions by combining an iterative technique with the orthogonal method. The final position of the elements is found from the last iteration where the desired approximation of the pattern is obtained. Arrays with more constraints on the pattern need more quantized amplitudes. Several examples for different cases show the applicability of our method.
