Shielded cargo hold
Commonly found on ships that can't always rely on shields to protect their cargo from cosmic radiation. Only a few tweaks are needed to have the shielding confound long-range cargo scans, reducing the probability of contraband being detected.

This is built into the Hound, Cerberus, pirate variant Buffalo and pirate variant Mule


The calculations for patrols finding illegal or suspicious volumes of cargo are quite complex and take into account a huge amount of factors, including the percentage of the fleet's total cargo capacity that is from ships with shielded cargo holds.
