In DecemberR Reactor became Savannah River Site's first production reactor when it was "taken to critical" (meaning that full operation resulted in a sustained nuclear chain reaction).

The R Reactor served as a prototype for the four other SRS reactors: P, L, K, and C. It produced plutonium, plutonium, and tritium - all ingredients of nuclear bombs.

The SRS, known as the Savannah River Plant (SRP) until when Westinghouse took over operations, was chosen because of its proximity to the Savannah River, a large source of water needed to remove the heat generated in the reactors, and a source for.
