ABSTRACT: In this paper, a wireless data transmission system used in unmanned surface vehicles is presented. To improve reliability, wireless local network based on IP is employed. Through interface protocol, multi-modal data from different observation instruments or equipments are converted into the uniform specification suitable for transmission. Different control methods of data transmission are discussed. Experiment results from a unmanned surface vehicle sailing in the Yangtze River estuary show that the wireless data transmission system is suitable for applicable use.
