"About this job

Nuclear Submarine Officers are in charge of all that goes into driving, powering, arming and operating the Navys Fleet of attack, ballistic missile and guided missile submarines. The stealth technology and advanced warfare capabilities of these nuclear-powered vessels, magnified by the sheer aptitude of those at the helm, has led to years of successful conflict engagement and deterrence.

Naturally, the Officers who man these 1.5 billion dollar vessels are held to the highest of standards and have extraordinary roles and responsibilities. Only a select group of disciplined and committed Officers are given the opportunity to lead departments up to an entire crew, commanding some of the most technologically advanced equipment in the world.

Submarine Officers ensure that all systems run smoothly. That means they could be in charge of any of the following:
Operating a nuclear reactor and nuclear propulsion system
Maintaining onboard weapons systems
Managing atmosphere control and fire control
Driving the vessel and charting its position
Operating communications and intelligence equipment

Submarine Officers are exposed to a variety of different work environments from academic classroom settings to training on prototype units to sea tours and shore assignments. The time spent on submarines involves deployments of a few to several months at a time, requiring the obvious adjustment to life on a space-limited submarine. Learn more about life on a sub."
