Cost effective and simple solution is proposed to a large linear array element failure problem depending on array thinning method. Genetic algorithm is used to optimise the state of the remained antenna elements. The obtained results indicate that the performance of the proposed method is very good even in the case of large number of elements are defected due to external conditions.
