Sub SEAL vehicles are primarily launched from a hangar attached to the casing of a submarine and are released whilst fully submerged, at depths up to 30m.
Example applications for a Sub SEAL include:
- Delivery of six-man combat team
- Host platform for littoral survey package
- Electronic warfare or reconnaisance platform
- Port & estuary security
- Mine countermeasure operations
Sub SEAL has been designed for rapid mission-specific re-configuration through the change-out of modular sections.
The following are examples of some of the many configurations available in support of the mission-types described above
- Swimmer Delivery Configuration – Carries six EOD or Special Ops personnel plus equipment
- Surveillance Package Configuration – Telescopic mast with high-resolution sensor suite, recording & comms
- Littoral Survey Configuration – Side-scan sonar package mounted externally to Sub SEAL
Deployment & Recovery Options
Sub SEAL may be deployed from a surface ship. JFD can provide Launch & Recovery Systems to meet customer requirements.
Medium-lift rotary wing aircraft are suitable for the insertion and extraction of an under-slung Sub SEAL vehicle.
Propulsion & Control
Power is provided by Lithium Polymer batteries and a vectored-thruster arrangement, affording sprint speeds of greater than seven knots and a range of 96km.
The Steering Information Navigation Control (SINC) system is common to all vehicles in The SEAL Pod.
SINC manages course, heading and way-point navigation, GPS, communications and reconnaissance equipment.
Dry Deck Shelter Integration
Sub SEAL’s primary method of insertion & extraction is via a submarine-attached Dry Deck Shelter. Sub SEAL may remain completely submerged and undetected throughout a mission.
Maintenance, mission-configuration and preparation takes place at one atmosphere inside the DDS during the transit phases to, and from, the area of operation.
