A methodology for computationally efficient simulation-driven design of microstrip antenna subarrays is presented. Our approach takes into account the effect of the feed (e.g., a corporate network) on the subarray side lobe level and allows adjusting both radiation and reflection responses of the structure under design within a single automated process. This process is realized as surrogate-based optimization that produces designs meeting requirements imposed on both radiation and reflection at the cost of just a few simulations of the high-fidelity model of the structure of interest. Selected optimal designs of microstrip subarrays operating at 10 GHz have been manufactured and validated by measuring their radiation patterns and reflection coefficients.
