In the paper, basic problems connected with designing optimal structure of control Unmanned Surface Vehicle USV used for a harbour protection were presented. A specificity of USV operation during carrying out protection tasks forces different view on hardware structure of the system and a process of taking decisions than during carrying out other tasks. Correct determination of the both factors have deciding influence on an effectiveness of carried out by the vehicle in this case mission.
