In this Air Crash investigation video clip (31:06), a beacon system that tells the pilots whether the aircraft is laterally aligned with the designated runway is mentioned. What's its official name?

    $\begingroup$ As this great documentation series also aims for people who are not into aviation, I think the "beacon" just refers to the localizer of the ILS. $\endgroup$ – Noah Krasser Oct 4 '17 at 15:44
