If I surround a station with Asteroid Hideouts, does the ECM extend to the station in the middle?

Example:

A=Asteroid Station
S=Station

AAA
ASA
AAA

Can you see the station in the middle on scanners?

No, ECM does not extend to other entities.

Yes, you can see the middle station.


ECM only affects the entity that has it. It would be an interesting concept for an ECM-enabled entity to block sensor coverage directly behind it, though that would enable an easy way of detecting hidden entities.

I've always thought that a station or any entity being in any grid doesn't mean it occupies the whole grid with itself, I thought it merely shows the approx location.

In other words the asteroid station can't be blocking other stations because the size of the station is smaller than the size of the "cell" it is in on the map.
