Shield Damage Reduction (SDR) is calculated with:

SDR = 1 - ( [1-x] * [1-y]* [1-z] * ....... etc.)

Wherein x, y, and z are Shield Damage Reductions granted by various BOff powers and the Shield Power Level (SPL) bonus SDR (which, as MustrumRidcully has already mentioned, should be equal to SPL/500... However, it should be noted that, due to a presumed bug, at VA-level, the current formula for SPL's SDR is (SPL-50}/500.)

Hope that helps,
