The navigational laser beam was a part of the navigational systems on Federation Starfleet Constitution-class starships in the mid-23rd century.

In 2266 navigator David Bailey reported interference to the USS Enterprise's navigational laser beam moments before the ship was hit by a cosmic storm. (TOS comic: "UK comic strips, first story arc")
