Anti-cloaking technology only exists in STO for the feds.

If you are to bring "what we should do" as if the IP is reality and the factions there-in need to act accordingly, as good war driven governments would, then the KDF would have already rolled through Star Fleet by now as the threat it is to the Empire rather than try to solve the Undine issue first and only skirmish with Star fleet in the manner the game shows.

Cloaking would not only be a ship ability, as the use for cloaking on torpedoes and other weapons is too logical a course to take in a war.
