2Title:  The USS Skipjack, first submarine driven by S5W plant Add
 Summary:  The USS Skipjack, the first boat on which the S5W reactor was installed. The S5W core was designed by Westinghouse's Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory. Unlike the S2W plant installed in the Nautilus, the S5W was designed and built without the benefit of a land-based prototype. The most significant improvements in the S5W design, relative to earlier Bettis-designed reactors, involved "the reactor core, including the fuel assemblies and the control rods" (282). These components could be tested at the Bettis laboratory without a full-scale prototype being constructed. The S5W, the submarine fleet reactor, was used to power nearly 100 fast attack and ballistic missile boats.

4Title:  Nuclear Power Training Unit, Charleston Add
 Summary:  The Nuclear Power Training Unit facility located at the Naval Weapons Station in Charleston, South Carolina. Graduates of Naval Nuclear Power School are assigned to qualify at a prototype plant in Charleston and in Ballston Spa, New York. The two prototypes at NPTU Charleston are moored submarines, both of which have S5W reactor plants.

5Title:  HMS Dreadnought, first British nuclear submarine Add
 Summary:  The HMS Dreadnought, the first British nuclear-powered submarine. In both her overall design and propulsion plant, the Dreadnought mirrored the six United States submarines of the Skipjack class. The Dreadnought was powered by an S5W reactor; Westinghouse worked with the British manufacturer Rolls Royce on the construction of the propulsion plant. Electric Boat provided assistance to the Vickers-Armstrong Limited shipyard for the submarine's construction.
