Under Naval Reactors, Westinghouse was responsible for the design and construction of the land-based S1W prototype reactor plant and the S2W plant that powered the Nautilus. Electric Boat constructed the Nautilus and was a subcontractor to Westinghouse for construction of the S1W prototype's hull.

6Title:  Mobilis in mobile: History of the U.S.S. Nautilus Add
 Summary:  Slides from a presentation by Andy Rogulich of the North American Jules Verne Society at the organization's 2007 conference. Rogulich describes the history of the USS Nautilus (SSN-571) and compares her with Verne's fictional Nautilus in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Rogulich's comparison of attributes of the USS Nautilus and Verne's Nautilus (page 16) is particularly interesting. He describes his visit to the Historic Ship Nautilus and the fact that a signed first edition of Verne's "Twenty Thousand Leagues" is displayed on board the Nautilus museum.
