The operational principles of transport inhibitors were not clearly explained, but they appeared to prevent remote transporter systems from being able to "lock on" to targets in their vicinity. The villainous [[Son'a]] were eventually able to circumvent the problem by using drone vehicles to fire tagging devices at their [[Ba'ku]] and [[Federation]] opponents; the tags provided a signal that the So'na transporters could lock onto in spite of the inhibitor fields, enabling them to transport their enemies to a holding facility.
