A locator beam was a device installed on Federation shuttlecraft, designed to aid starships in locating wayward shuttles. The locator beam, however, needed to be activated from within the shuttle.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard used the locator beam in his shuttle in an attempt to assist the USS Enterprise-D in finding him when he was kidnapped briefly by Q in 2365. (TNG: "Q Who")
