EVE Online’s mobile observatories are now available to test on the game’s Singularity test environment. If you’re looking to hop in and check them out, here are some details you might be interested in knowing.
The mobile observatory is described as a deployable which introduces a “new tool into the mix” as defense against cloaking incursions while you head into Lowsec and Nullsec regions of New Eden. As to how they work, they effectively ping the system intermittently. Doing this gives you a chance to detect and decloak any cloaked ships in the area. You can then combat-scan these ships and destroy them.
However, to provide some balance to the experience, your cloak ship will receive a new buff when you activate your cloak to provide some defense against the mobile observatory pings.

This follows some pretty major overhauls for a few in-game locations and features. This includes a visual overhaul for the interior of Jita 4-4 and Aura. You can read about this overhaul here.
