This item when activated, protects you from enemy attacks (makes them unable to target you). Note that it does not protect you from collisions with objects such as asteroids. It is useful during certain points in high level missions where you are coming under intense fire. For most missions it can only be used once or perhaps twice since it has a 2 and a half minute cooldown period. You activate it by clicking the 3rd icon shown to the right or by pressing the 3 key.
