11Title:  The NR-1 research vessel Add
 Summary:  The NR-1 nuclear submarine at Port Canaveral, Florida. NR-1 was a small, deep-diving submarine that was designed to operate on the ocean floor.The submarine's low-power reactor was designed by General Electric and could be operated by a single crewman.

12Title:  The USS Truxtun at sea Add
 Summary:  The USS Truxtun (CGN-35), the fourth surface nuclear vessel commissioned by the Navy, and the only ship of the Truxtun class. The Truxtun was the second guided missile frigate, after the Bainbridge, and was powered by two D2G reactors.

 Summary:  An aerial view of the Naval Reactors Facility at the Idaho National Laboratory. NRF was the site of the S1W, A1W, and S5G prototypes. The site's Expended Core Facility remains open to support the processing of spent fuel from United States naval reactors.

14Title:  The USS Truxtun, following its decommissioning Add
 Summary:  The Truxtun (CGN-35) in ship recycling at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. The Truxtun was the second nuclear frigate, following the USS Bainbridge. Like the Bainbridge, the Truxtun was powered by two D2G reactors.

15Title:  Pressurized-water naval nuclear propulsion system Add
 Summary:  A simplified view of the major primary and secondary components in a naval nuclear propulsion plant. The fuel elements, containing Uranium-235 pellets, are enclosed in the reactor vessel. Pressurized water is used to moderate neutrons in the reactor core and serves as the heat transfer medium. Heated water moves to the steam generator, where the heat transfer takes place between the primary and secondary loops. The main coolant pump then returns the relatively cool water to the reactor core. The pressurizer enables primary loop pressure control through heaters (to increase pressure) and spray (to reduce pressure). The steam produced in the steam generator is used to drive turbines for propulsion and electrical power.

16Title:  The USS Long Beach at sea Add
 Summary:  The USS Long Beach (CGN-9) underway. The cruiser was powered by two C1W reactors and, at the time of its 1961 commissioning, was equipped with Talos and Terrier surface-to-air missiles. The advanced weapons systems contributed to the ship's cost overrun, from an estimated 85 million to 330 million dollars (though the costs for the C1W plants also rose, from an estimated 26 million dollars to 41 million dollars). Cost overruns for the Long Beach and Enterprise helped to slow adoption of nuclear power in the surface fleet; nearly a decade would elapse between the Enterprise's commissioning and that of the next nuclear powered carrier, the USS Nimitz.

19Title:  Exterior view of the A1W prototype, Idaho National Laboratory Add
 Summary:  An exterior view of the A1W prototype plant at the Idaho National Laboratory. A1W was the prototype for the Enterprise A2W shipboard reactor plants; the prototype contained two reactors and the steam plant equipment to power one shaft. Data from the A1W prototype were also used in the design of the C1W reactor plant, which powered the USS Long Beach.

20Title:  The George Washington - ballistic missile submarine Add
 Summary:  The USS George Washington (SSBN-598), the world's first ballistic missile submarine, being launched at Electric Boat in Groton, Connecticut in 1959. Because of the national security urgency of building a less-vulnerable missile system, the construction of the George Washington was expedited by using the bow and stern sections of the of the under-construction Scorpion, and inserting a 130 foot missile section between the two sections. She was powered by the submarine fleet reactor plant, the S5W.
