A targeting scanner (or target acquisition) was a part of transporter systems. It was used to locate objects which needed to be transported.

In 2151 Commander Tucker informed Lieutenant Malcolm Reed that the targeting scanners would be online in about an hour, moments after the attack of an unidentified alien vessel. (ENT: "Silent Enemy")

Targeting scanners could also be used to aim weapons at a target during a tactical scenario.

In an alternate version of 1944, Armory Officer Reed attempted to use the targeting scanners aboard the NX-class starship Enterprise to destroy a facility belonging to Vosk, the leader of the Na'kuhl. He was unable to lock on to the building with targeting scanners, so he used visual scanners instead. (ENT: "Storm Front, Part II")
