This paper presenting the study of optimization technique for RF-MEMS Reconfigurable antenna. The Reconfigurable antenna has ability that its parameters could be changed and for achieving the most favorable or most advantageble optimized parameters we are using the GSO algorithm with ANN. Optimal parameters are selected for designing the antenna. Implementation is done with the help of MATLAB, and the performance will be analyzed with existing methodologies. With the help of this technique we are getting efficient RF MEMS Reconfigurable antenna with reduction in bit error rate and Mean Square Error, and increase in the efficiency and accuracy.
