* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' has this as a common power of [[PsychicPowers psykers]]. This is particularly useful for battlefield psykers, where this ability is ideal for detecting enemy troop movements or spotting ambushes that are otherwise perfectly camouflaged to conventional perception. This is used on space craft as well, where "[[StealthInSpace going cold]]" is no proof against psychic detection. The measured advice of a few psykers can have a drastic effect on the deployment and success of an entire military.

** This is also used in a broader sense when the Imperium is planning for the long term for a particular region of space, more or less officially called "strategic prognostication". Occasionally, divination tells of a major or ongoing threat that will come to the area, and the Imperium will set up a permanent military presence to watch over the region. Knowing the luck of the Imperium in such matters, it's likely that this has been met with mixed results.
