The nuclear characteristics of the N.S. Savannah's Core 1, presented herein, were measured at intervals of 1399 and 3078 EFPH of core operation. These measurements fulfill the safeguard requirement of scheduled physics test periods at 1500 and 2500 EfPH. No adverse trend or anomalous reactivity effect has developed since Core 1 was installed in December 1961.
