This is about the ship component. Main article: Cloaking.

Description

The Cloaking Device allows to reduce the sensor cross section of a ship. The maximum ship size for a Cloaking Device is given by

  Efficiency * Base Size

The ship will be detected at the same range as a smaller ship.

Usage

Cloaking Devices are very useful for scout ships and survey craft to stay undetected. A cloak only protects against Active Sensors, so reduced thermal engines and low EM emissions are needed to make a true stealth craft.

Cloaking Devices need a significant amount of research, and thus are later game technology.
