Locator Beacons are portable signalling devices that include a teleport homer, broad-spectrum communicators, and geo-positional tracking. They are frequently carried by Space Marine Scout Bike Squads, where they are placed behind enemy lines.[1]

When activated, the beacons provide detailed tactical information to the Marine force's headquarters, and allow for pinpoint reinforcement, via Drop Pod or teleportation, or for a coordinated deep strike offensive.[1]

They also mark the spots for deployment of remote defenses, such as Tarantula Sentry Guns.[2]
