  United States Naval reactor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
United States Naval reactors are given three-character designations consisting of a letter representing the ship type the reactor is designed for, a consecutive generation number, and a letter indicating the reactor's designer.
After the Skate-class vessels, reactor development proceeded and in the USA a single series of standardised designs was built by both Westinghouse and General Electric, one reactor powering each vessel.
A marine reactor was used to supply power (1.5 MWe) and heating to a US Antarctic base for ten years to 1972, testing the feasibility of such air-portable units for remote locations.

 Nuclear Propulsion
Unlike commercial nuclear power plants, Naval reactors must be rugged and resilient enough to withstand decades of rigorous operations at sea, subject to a ship's pitching and rolling and rapidly-changing demands for power, possibly under battle conditions.
For submarines, the reactor compartment is a horizontal cyhder formed by a section of the ship’s pressure hull, with shielded bulkheads on each end.
The submarine thermal reactor prototype was constructed in 1951 and shut down in 1989; the large ship reactor prototype was constructed in 1958 and shut down in 1994; and the submarine reactor plant prototype was constructed in 1965 and shut down in 1995.

The NRF also operates three prototype nuclear reactor plants: Aircraft Carrier 1 Westinghouse (A1W), Submarine Fifth Generation (S5G), and Submarine First Generation Westinghouse (S1W).\5\ The prototype reactor plants are used to train civilian and Navy personnel and to test machinery.
In that case, the Board found: The technical functions of NRF are thoroughly integrated and interdependent, and all the [technical] employees.
In 1962, the Board in refusing to exclude industrial hygienists from an appropriate unit observed: Their main function is to check on contamination levels in the different facilities, and to prescribe interim correction of hazardous conditions, and the proper repair of defective equipment.

 frontline: loose nukes: Avoiding Nuclear Anarchy | PBS
Nuclear reactors cause sustained chain reactions by assembling a mass of fissile material whose criticality is dependent on the presence of a moderator like graphite or water that slows neutrons down, thereby exploiting the high fission cross-sections of fissile materials in the presence of low energy, or thermal, neutrons.
When reactor fuel is used in a reactor for a long time, it is called "high burn up" fuel, and the plutonium produced from it will be less concentrated or enriched in the isotope Pu-239 than if it were "low burn up" fuel that was in a reactor for a comparatively shorter period.
Before these announcements, the enrichment facilities in question do not seem to have been detected by the rest of the world, although this was less certainly the case with the Argentine gaseous diffusion plant at Pilcaniyeu than it was for the pilot Brazilian centrifuge facility at Sao Paulo University.
