The nuclear leakage is a super disaster, and the offshore approaching observation is seriously restricted when nuclear power station leaks. An observation system based on an Unmanned Surface Vehicle ‘Jiu Hang 490’ is designed and developed for nuclear radiation emergent observation. First, the design and system integration of the USV are introduced in detail. Second, sea trials are performed near the nuclear power station at Shi-Island bay in Rongcheng City, Shandong Province, China at September 2017 and at Nanjiang port in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China at July 2018 respectively. Last, the ability for data acquirement for nuclear radiation and autonomous control of the USV are tested and performed. The practicability and reliability of the system are validated for nuclear radiation emergent observation through the sea trials.
