DCE AB has been acquired by James Fisher Defence.

The SEAL Pod range of vehicles combines the offerings of the two businesses.

Introducing The SEAL Pod

SEAL Pod vehicles primarily exist to facilitate the insertion and extraction of Special Operations forces and equipment. In this role, their use allows for greater stand-off from surface ships and submarines.

The vehicles have further application in the maritime littoral space. These include specialist maritime operations, mine countermeasures, counter-terrorism, counter-narcotics, counter-piracy and maritime protection operations.

SEAL Pod vehicles are surface or subsurface craft, each optimised for a particular deployment method or mission profile.

Development, testing and trials have taken place in the Stockholm archipelago, the Baltic Sea, Portland Harbour and the waters off the west coast of Scotland.

James Fisher Defence has over 30 years' experience of operating safely subsea.



SEAL Carriers are primarily deployed from a surface vessel and are able to cover large distances at high speed.

During the approach, the vehicle may submerge to remain undetected.

SEAL Carrier vehicles transit at speeds of up to 30 kts on the surface thanks to an on board diesel engine and water jet. Submerged propulsion is delivered by thrusters and powered by advanced Lithium Polymer batteries.

Sub SEALs are primarily deployed from a host submarine carrying personnel and equipment.

They remain fully-submerged throughout the entirety of their mission.

Power is provided by Lithium Polymer batteries and a vectored-thruster arrangement, producing a minimal noise signature.

Torpedo SEAL

Torpedo SEAL can be deployed from a host submarine's torpedo tube or from any surface vessel.

They are rapidly deployable, simple to operate and extremely cost effective.

Torpedo SEAL may also be easily stowed within the multi-purpose tubes being integrated into future submarine designs, or beneath the outer casing of the submarine.
