People can detect you while using MES, the higher their Auxiliary power setting. Science characters seem to get a bonus. However, it seems to be ineffective unless the MES'd guy is within 4 or 5 km - usually even less. This is much like detecting cloaked vessels.
in pvp they can see you from a stupidly long distance away (upwards of 19km). and your shield power goes to ZERO while its up.
