... Really it seems like it's just a device that makes the shields do something different than usual.
It's unclear if the cloaking device was connected in any way to the Romulans shields. Years back though, I did propose that what a cloak was was basically a "inside out" shield, instead of keeping certain energy's out, it keep them inside the shield "bubble."

That why it was a innovation when the klingon figure how to fire torpedoes without dropping the cloak.

Also why in Generation when the BoP started to cloak, it's regular shields went down.

Knowing which direction the wind is coming from does assist in the launching of aircraft.
