Locator beacons are devices designed to tag and lock targets for Asgard transporter beams. Targets can differ from a human to something as massive as a skyscraper. The small device can be easily concealed, and does not need to be activated remotely. When always transmitting the coordinates, the beacon gives off a minute energy anomaly which are easily fooled as other signals.
Instances of useEdit
- The Trust used locator beacons to move the Stargate to their new Al'kesh, and themselves from the surface to their ship. SG-1 later used a Trust beacon to signal Prometheus to beam them and the Stargate aboard. (SG1: "Endgame")
- Stargate Command tagged Daniel Jackson with a locator beacon before sending him back to Tegalus with Jared Kane, but the beacon was found separated from his body. After this event, Subcutaneous locator beacons were used. (SG1: "Ethon", "Off the Grid")
- Locator beacons were placed on stolen Stargates by Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter so that the Odyssey could beam them aboard. (SG1: "Off the Grid")
- Several captured Ba'al clones escaped the SGC using locator beacons in close proximity to each other; the signals became amplified, allowing the clones to break through the SGC jamming screen and beam to an tel'tak waiting in Earth orbit. (SG1: "Insiders")
