Description: The AN/APR-48A Radar Frequency Interferometer (RFI) provides situational awareness and threat warning aboard Apache/Apache Longbow helicopters. It does so by passively detecting, accurately identifying and precisely locating radar emitters. The RFI system performs target acquisition and cueing of Radar Frequency threat systems, such as surface-to-air missile sites or radar-guided anti-aircraft artillery. RFI can operate in conjunction with the AGM-122 Sidearm anti-radiation missile.

More than 330 APR-48s have been produced so far for the United States military and international military customers worldwide. RFI-equipped Apache attack helicopters have been serving in modern military conflicts such as Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. In August 2006, the US Army awarded Lockheed Martin a $16 million contract for the supply of 37 AN/APR-48A RFIs to the United States (7) and to the United Arab Emirates (30).
