    In this paper two novel MIMO UWB antenna arrays have been proposed for through dress imaging radar application. The advantage os using MIMO array is that the number of elements can be reduced and the element spacing can be sparser than that of SIMO array, while the performance will be almost the same. Particle swarm optimization (PSO) method is used to determine the optimum antenna array topologies for different scenarios that can provide sufficient cross-range resolution and an acceptable mainlobe to side lobe level. The results demonstrated that by properly design the fitness function, we can trade off the cross-range resolution and mainlobe to sidelobe ratio and find proper array topologies for different scenarios.
