Torpedo SEAL, which transits within a standard 533 mm submarine torpedo tube may be used for the following purposes:
- Extend the operating range of a combat team
- Underwater survey & reconnaissance
- Delivery of explosive ordnance
- Counter-narcotics & harbour patrol
- Mine countermeasure operations

The SDV has a sprint speed of 4 knots, can dive to a maximum depth of 50 meters and has a range of 10 nautical miles.

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

In addition to its primary insertion method, Torpedo SEAL may also be launched from any surface craft, underslung by rotary-wing aircraft or stored beneath the outer casing of a submarine.

Torpedo SEAL is currently in use with the Swedish Navy special forces.
