Sensors are used to detect objects beyond visual range and assisting other systems with targeting. Such as detecting spacecraft on the other side of a solar system or targeting of weapon bays and other systems.
Each sensor unit increases the range which a spacecraft can detect contacts by about 6km. The sensor station has about 6km range as well.
- 3-5 million meter range is generally enough to cover an entire single star system
- 7-8 million meter range is generally enough to cover an entire binary star systems
- 12-14 million meter range is generally enough to cover an entire trinary systems
When crew is ordered to do a system survey, the time required to do so will depend on the number of celestial bodies in the solar system, the range category of the sensors, and the rank of the sensor station operator.
