The Radar (Room) is a 2x2 room unlocked at level 9. When powered, the Radar will take time off of the enemy's Cloak duration every time it reloads. The Radar is the only room which reduces Cloak duration, making it quite useful in some end-game scenarios where players run complicated Cloak Generator strategies.
The Radar is very situational as it only serves one purpose— shorten cloak duration. If the enemy has a Cloak active, the Radar can efficiently remove large chunks of its length. With a max level Radar, it can effectively half the entire cloak duration. It is advised to Armor this room well because of its small size and energy level, similar to the Anti Craft laser.
When To Use
The Radar is best used at level 11, as the Cloak Generator is mainly used by high-level ships. Usage outside of level 11 mainly comes down to the player's choice. Some players find the Radar to be not worthwhile and would rather put their energy and space to other uses, which is completely reasonable depending on their play style.
Here is a good AI command to help save power. The AI will depower the Radar if the enemy ship doesn't have a currently active cloak. The Radar is also categorized as "Radar" in AI coding.
Enemy Ship Has Cloak -> Set Maximum Power None -> Set Minimum Power
