Dry Combat SubmersibleLockheed Martin has partnered with Submergence Group to build, integrate and test three undersea transport vehicles for the U.S. Special Operations Command.

The companies will collaborate to produce Dry Combat Submersibles under a potential five-year, $166 million contract awarded by USSOCOM, Lockheed said Thursday.

Erika Marshall, general manager and program director at Lockheed’s Palm Beach site, said the DCS vehicles will be built to “protect personnel, ensure they arrive ready to execute their mission and return them safely.”

The more than 30-ton DCS platform is designed to be launched from surface ships, travel long distances underwater and surpass operational depth capacity of existing swimmer delivery vehicles, Lockheed noted.

Lockheed noted contract work will occur in Palm Beach County, Florida and in Plymouth, England.
