A navigation beacon was a component of an Andorian escape pod which allowed nearby spacecraft to easily detect it. The beacon blinked intermittently, which was visible on the craft's hull, while active.

In December of 2153, a navigation beacon was used by an Andorian escape pod containing Starfleet Captain Jonathan Archer. The beacon helped Enterprise NX-01 to find him. (ENT: "Proving Ground")

The term "navigation beacon" comes from the final draft script of "Proving Ground".
