SEAL Carrier operates in three modes; surface, semi-submerged and submerged.
Launched from a surface ship, SEAL Carrier vehicles transit at speeds of up to 30kts on the surface before switching to submerged mode for a covert final approach.
Example applications for a SEAL Carrier include:

SEAL Carrier's two propulsion systems are designed to provide optimum performance, whether travelling at speed on the surface or quietly whilst fully submerged.

The Steering Information Navigation Control (SINC) system is common to all vehicles in The SEAL Pod.
SINC automates course, heading, depth and levelling of the craft. SINC also manages navigation, communications, electrical and hydraulic systems and the transition between surface and submerged modes.
SEAL Carrier is capable of being transported behind the sail or fin, attached to the outer hull, of a submarine.
Optionally configured to withstand depths of up to 150m, this option provides additional range and stealth, making it ideal for operations in coastal areas or long-range missions.
Utilising the SEAL Air Delivery System, SEAL Carrier vehicles may in future be deployed via low-velocity extraction drop from a Lockheed C-17 or similar fixed-wing aircraft.
A medium-lift helicopter may also be used for low altitude deployments and recoveries.
The High Speed Stealth Combat Craft is suited to mission profiles demanding greater range, endurance and payload capacity.
The craft accommodates three crew, 16 marines and their equipment. For fire support, a remote operated weapons system with a 12.7 heavy machine gun and advanced Electronic Ordnance system may be installed.

SEAL Carrier SMART caters for mission profiles with shorter transit phases and less demanding payload requirements.
SEAL Carrier SMART makes a modest trade-off in performance in exchange for greater cost-efficiency both up-front and through-life.
James Fisher Defence Sweden is the new home of The SEAL Pod.
