STIDD Diver Propulsion Device (DPD) – Question and Answer Session
In 2000, USSOCOM issued a request for proposal (RFP) for a new diver propulsion vehicle (DPV). STIDD responded to the RFP with the diver propulsion device (DPD), which included an innovative collapsible hull design reducing stowed volume to a fraction of any other DPV.
The DPD met all naval special warfare (NSW) requirements and technical specifications, and STIDD was subsequently awarded a production contract. Since then, in addition to the Navy SEALs, the US Marine Corps special operations units and Army special forces have adopted the DPD in large quantities as their exclusive combat diving vehicle.
