Are you aware, that contrary to the skill description, it does in fact not buff either Sensor Scan or Fire on My Mark? Either the skill is bugged, or the the description should the altered to remove inaccurate information. These powers are listed under the "examples include" bit in the skill description, and I"ve had to tell a lot of people that their belief in the skill was mistaken.

Based on testing the debuff values with six ranks in the skill versus no ranks in the skill; same ship, same character, same consoles.

Maybe it only affects the stealth/perception part? Or is that one unaffected as well?

That's the only part it says it affects - so if it's not affecting it, that's kind of off.

The Amicus list has it affecting Sensor Scan, base Stealth detection, says it didn't do anything noticeable for the Tach stuff, and does not mention FoMM.

It affects the stealth detection part only of FOMM and sensor scan, also beta/delta debuff.

If it does affect stealth detection, it doesn't do it very much; my testing has found that there's a difference of less than 2km between having four +sensor consoles and none when it comes to detection range. It would be useful to clarify this in the descriptive text, since the ground skills actually can enchance the debuff strength; this is an inconsistency that should be noted so players are aware of it.

Starship Sensors
Improves Starship Stealth Detection
This skill improves starship sensor abilities allowing you to see cloaked enemy targets sooner.

Is what the skill says for me.
