Defense fields were a type of deflector shielding that was employed by late 23rd century Federation starships. They were raised during yellow alerts, and protected the bridge area of the ship. These localized shields were used to prevent hostiles from transporting boarding parties or weapons directly onto the bridge or into the surrounding areas of the ship. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

As deflector shield technology improved, they appear to have been phased out.
