The most imperative process in smart antenna system is beam forming, which changes the beam pattern of an antenna for a particular angle. If the antenna does not change the position for the specified angle, then the signal loss will be very high. By considering the aforesaid drawback, here a new genetic algorithm based technique for beam forming in smart antenna system is proposed. In the proposed technique, if the angle is given as input, the maximum signal gain in the beam pattern of the antenna with corresponding position and phase angle is obtained as output. The length of the beam, interference, phase angle, and the number of patterns are the factors that are considered in our proposed technique. By using this technique, the gain of the system gets increased as well as the interference is reduced considerably. The implementation result exhibits the efficiency of the system in beam forming.
