An arrangement of receivers and transmitters used in wideband holographic imaging using a reduced number of physical antenna elements compared to established techniques and systems. At least one of the receivers is configured to receive the reflected signal from three or more of transmitters, and at least one transmitter is configured to transmit a signal to an object, the reflection of which will be received by at least three receivers. The improved arrays are easily incorporated into existing microwave and millimeter wave holographic imaging equipment utilizing the existing mechanical features of this equipment, as well as the existing wideband holographic imaging algorithms and electronics for constructing images.
