In Nebulous: Fleet Command, can you apply multiple Adaptive Radar Receiver modules to the same ship? How much does it impact the sensitivity?

They stack and you can see the results in the right hand side of the ship builder, in the sensor section.

v0.3.0.57 numbers:
1 ARR: +25% sensitivity, -0.7 dB, +5% position error, +2.5% velocity error.
2 ARR: +48% sensitivity, -1.35 dB, +9.6% position error, +4.8% velocity error.
4 ARR: +78% sensitivity, -2.19 dB, +15.6% position error, +7.8% velocity error.

So, as with most things in this game, there's diminishing returns. I find it really hard to say how effective it is in actual gameplay without doing some careful 1 on 1 tests with a friend, but them's the numbers. You can offset the error by putting in a track correlator. One correlator more than offsets the error caused by 4 ARRs.

Note also: this doesn't change the range of any radar, only its sensitivity, which is to say, its odds of picking up weaker signals (stealthier ships).
