Short range marker beacon

The short range marker beacon is a homing device used to track friendly Colonial craft.

Such a beacon is fitted in Starchaser, a recon Viper Starbuck pilots into Alpha Six quadrant. Presumably, the range of the marker beacon is at least a hectar (TOS: "The Long Patrol").
