I'm still trying to figure out a lot of stuff in regards to sensors. There doesn't really seem to be a lot of discussion on that topic compared to other aspects of GSF.

More than a few times I've been guarding a node with a careful eye towards the approach routes and been caught off guard from behind. I haven't figured out yet if behind you is a complete sensor blind spot or if you have limited range in your 4-8 range. LoS plays a part too, sometimes if a ship is behind an asteroid you can almost trip on them before you detect them while other times you see them far out even if an ally isn't near them.
