what is this? myself and several corp members have gotten this from trying to target a ship. is this a form of jamming or target disruption?

If your target hits warp before you have a lock on him you'll get that message. You can't lock someone who is entering warp.

not entirely correct,

every player has a 10s invulnerability timeout when entering a system or leaving warp (to allow objects to be loaded etc) during this timeout he can't be locked or lock himself a target.

10s invunerability? tell it to the Serp Guards that like to have 1/2 of my sheild gone before I see them, then the 15 more seconds I have to wait now to target them after entering the area.

Maybe that 10s only counts to players...not NPCs

You were going after Tank, huh? Good luck. See even while you're invul to get hit, and no one can lock you, he can prepare his warp command. By the time you can *start* lock - which takes a few full seconds in most cruisers even with Sig Analysis at a decent level - he's entered "warp drive active."

If you're already shooting him when this happens, you will still hit (how many people have lost a ship due to hanging in WDA for a good solid minute or more? Wheee!). But if you haven't gotten him locked by then, any attempt will fail.

This is why the runner always wins a confrontation. By these game mechanics, the ambushed can outdraw the ambushers every time. Go figure.
