We present some modifications to the deterministic approach (DA) recently proposed for fast design of aperiodic concentric ring arrays. Such modifications are aimed at improving the array performances in terms of directivity, side lobe level (SLL) and number of control points. In particular, an easy implementation of the size-tapering concept is provided within the processing scheme of the DA procedure; moreover, an improved collocation criterion is presented. Finally, a local optimization procedure, tailored to the concentric ring array case, is addressed.
