Inscription.  
Unlike SEAL Delivery Vehicles (SDV), the Button is a dry submersible which allows SEALs to travel in relative comfort for much longer periods of time to complete their mission. The Button reverses the usual layout of an SDV with the crew in the back, passengers in the middle, and lock-out chamber in the bow. The lock-out chamber allows divers to exit the submarine underwater using hatches located top and bottom of the chamber. The Button is 31 feet in length, with the beam and height of 6.3 feet. It has an operating depth of 110 meters, and is powered by batteries. The Button can travel for 60 nautical miles at five knots.
