A subspace beacon was an omnidirectional repeating signal transmitted in the subspace realm.

In 2153, Tellarite bounty hunter Skalaar deployed such a beacon as a decoy from the Tellarite shuttle he captained. Its warp signature was tracked by Enterprise NX-01 but the device was ultimately destroyed by that starship. (ENT: "Bounty")

In the final draft script of "Bounty", this design of beacon was described as a "tiny" and "small, blinking beacon".

In an alternate timeline, Kathryn Janeway activated the subspace beacon in her Starfleet combadge when she and Tom Paris were thrown back in time on an unknown Class M planet. The senior staff of the USS Voyager used the beacon to locate and attempt to retrieve Janeway and Paris. (VOY: "Time and Again")

Federation escape pods were equipped with subspace beacons, allowing personnel to track evacuating crew. (VOY: "Year of Hell")
