Nothing in navigation strictly required a laser, or any particular sensor. It is _easier_ admittedly with a lidar because you can use AMCL "for free" as a starting point for localization. If you have a localization method from other sensing, then there's no reason you cannot use the navigation stack assuming you have some sensing to avoid obstacles and some pre-built (or building while moving) environment map that can be used to plan and control in.
