Could someone explain exactly how these work? I'm thinking about getting one to use while exploring but I'm not exactly sure what you can do with them. What I want on for is to loot radar and mag sites without having to destroy the NPCs first and eventually for exploring low sec space. Can I do that with one of these?

Covert Ops ships are one of the few ships capable of fitting a "Covert Ops Cloaking Device II" - which is the only cloaking device which allows you to warp while cloaked.

They also have a bonus to using scan probes, which makes them the best ship for scanning down exploration sites. Unfortunately, because they can't take or deal much damage (Exception: The Little Helios That Could), you will need to bring another ship to any exploration ship which rats can appear in (which I think is true for every exploration site).

Its been a long time since I've done radar sites, but if memory is correct you cannot loot the cans while under attack.

The problem with that - is that to loot something - you have to get within 2500 meters of it - and if you get within 2500 meters of anything your cloak will turn off ...

cloak dies at 2000m, not 2500m.

Basically if you want to loot the sites your going to have to clear the NPC's first, So in order to do that you need a friend/alt or you need to setup a T3 (tengu probably best) and set that up for Covert Ops, in this way you will have enough to kill the NPC's and tank any damage.
You can probably use a Pilgrim as well but this will be alot slower as you relying on the drones your carrying to kill the NPC's.

You cannot hack cans when cloaked, however, range be damned.
