  S1W reactor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The S1W nuclear reactor was a Westinghouse Electric Corporation-built naval reactor.
The S1W propulsion plant was built at the National Reactor Testing Station near Arco, Idaho.
Under the leadership of Hyman Rickover, Naval Reactors followed a concurrent design strategy, overseeing the design and construction of the S1W reactor ahead of the design and construction of the Nautilus, enabling problems to be identified and resolved in the shipboard plant.

Reactors are sited, designed, constructed, modified, operated, maintained, and decommissioned in a manner that gives adequate protection for health and safety and will be in accordance with uniform standards, guides, and codes which are consistent with those applied to comparable licensed reactors.
Reactor Facility, unless it is modified by words such as containment, vessel, or core, means the entire reactor facility including the housing, equipment, and associated areas devoted to the operation and maintenance of one or more reactor cores.
Reactor Operations are all those activities or functions involved in operating and using a reactor which, for purposes of this Order, begin with the initial loading of fuel in the reactor vessel and end with the removal of fuel to officially decommission or place the reactor in a standby status.

 U.S. Navy ships Information
A nuclear reactor is a device in which nuclear chain reactions are initiated, controlled, and sustained at a steady rate (as opposed to a nuclear explosion, where the chain reaction occurs in a split second).
Critical fission reactors usually consist of several parts: a reactor core that houses the reaction itself; a working fluid (usually water) to remove heat from the reactor core; some sort of shielding to prevent the reactor from emitting ionizing radiation and neutrons; and a containment vessel to prevent leakage of radioactive isotopes.
In many reactors, the rods are mounted vertically and suspended by electromagnets, so that interrupting the power to the electromagnets causes the reactor to fail safely by dropping all of the rods into the core.

Each propulsion plant is capable of operating on one reactor plant through most of the power range required to propel the ship (at speeds in excess of 33 knots (61 km/h) - rumours of speeds of 60 knots (111 km/h) are just that - rumours).
There the heat from the reactor coolant water is transferred, through tube walls, to water being fed into the steam generators from a separate feed system.
Once the reactor coolant water has given off its heat in the steam generators, it is returned, via large electric pumps (four per reactor), to the reactors to repeat the cycle.

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.
Reactor coolant carries some of these radioactive products through the piping systems where a portion of the radioactivity is removed by a purification system.
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.

On July 17, 1955, reactors at the NRTS made Arco, Idaho, the first town in the world to be powered by atomic energy.
It could be argued that because of Rickover's singular focus on reactor operations, and direct line of communications with each nuclear submarine's captain, that this acted against the captains' warfighting abilities.

The U.S. Army operated a small reactor out in the Idaho desert (at the National Reactor Testing Station) that was intended to be used for powering remote radar stations to be used in the early warning system.
For various reasons, there was an accident that claimed the lives of all three technicians, required the complete disassembly of the plant and in many good ways, significantly influenced the way that military nuclear facilities were operated.

This is an ACRS concern raised by the Subcommittee on TMI-2 Implications in October 1979.
This issue centers around the possibility of a breach in the reactor coolant system boundary caused by the failure of nonsafety interlocks between pressurizer water level and pressurizer heater power and prolonged overheating of the immersion heaters due to operator failure to detect and terminate electrical power.
The obvious solution would be to upgrade and expand the heater power and pressurizer level interlocks, operator training, and control of IandC modifications and repair efforts in accordance with QA procedures for protective systems rather than normal nonsafety plant systems.
