Defensive screen is the standard Tinris World Navy terminology for a facet of the Wildspace Fleet Formation principle also called 'defense in depth'. It refers to the 'screen' of smaller, faster or otherwise more capable ships being in an outer portion of the fleet's formation to best engage threats before they are in range to threaten a fleet's capital ships, supply ships or other vessels of high tactical value. This layer of the fleet's defenses also allows capital ships, carriers and other slower moving vessels to react with more warning and bring main guns to bear on an enemy's capital ships more effectively.
