A convex iterative algorithm for the synthesis of uniform amplitude, space-tapered linear phased arrays with simultaneous multiple beam optimization for 5G applications is presented. The performance of the algorithm is demonstrated by the synthesis of two arrays having 16 and 24 elements with 60 and 90 degree scan range, respectively. The effect of phase shifter quantization is also addressed. The results indicate that the space-tapered arrays with multiple beam optimization have improved radiation performance in terms of the side lobe level when compared to both single, broadside, beam optimized space-tapered arrays and uniformly distributed arrays with half wavelength spacing.
