In order to improve an imaging performance of a sparse array radar system we propose an optimization method to find a new antenna array layout. The method searches for a minimum of the cost function based on a 3D point spread function of the array. We found a solution for the simulated problem in a form of the new layout for the antenna array with more sparse middle-point distribution comparing with initial one.
