The S2W reactor is a naval reactor used by the United States Navy to provide electricity generation and propulsion on warships. The S2W designation stands for:

This nuclear reactor is the shipboard equivalent of the prototype S1W reactor, with minor design changes, that was installed on the USS Nautilus SSN-571.
