Yeah, I like this idea.

In my opinion it should work in a similar manner to SFC. As you get closer to the target, the target info box will fill out with specific data.

25km - The target info box displays hull value (rather then hovering your mouse over it)

20km - The target info box displays the targets weapon hardpoints (but not the weapons themselves) which pretty much everyone will know anyway. It'll also display the speed.

15km - The target info box allows you to get specific shield health values by hovering your mouse over a shield face.

10km - The target info box displays specific weapons in the form of icons.

5km - Details on shield array, engine and deflector are displayed. No specific details such as the "mark" or it's mods, just details like graviton, covariant, combat, Borg etc.

BO layout would be too much. Also, from a more in-universe perspective, how is a scan supposed to tell you who is working at a station.

Cloaked and MES'd ships should not be able to get information beyond what a non-cloaked ship at 20km could get.
