This paper describes the design of adaptive null antenna and its implementation through Genetic Algorithm. The step-by-step implementation of GA has been demonstrated using a flow chart to determine the complex excitation co-efficient of adaptive null linear array antenna. This algorithm can avoid the local minimal as observed in LMS) and converges towards the global optimum solution.
