Military experts have studied rogue drones extensively in an effort to learn useful techniques from these inscrutable, collective intelligences. Many observer units have attempted close-range study using a combination nanocoating and holoprojection method of imitating rogue drones, so as to achieve a kind of camouflage effect.
The success rate of such attempts has not been released publicly but is thought to somewhat low. Oddly enough, the rather unusual look that can be achieved using the attempted camouflage method has caught the eye of some spaceship captains. The nanocoating and holography patterns may have limited utility as practical camouflage but its aesthetic properties has a certain appeal and can be seen being flaunted by some pilots plying the spacelanes of New Eden.
