We consider the semidirect product $G = K \ltimes V$ where $K$ is a connected compact Lie group acting by automorphisms on a finite dimensional real vector space $V$ equipped with an inner product $\langle,\rangle$. We denote by $\widehat{G}$ the unitary dual of $G$ (note that we identify each representation $\pi\in\widehat{G}$ to its classes $[\pi]$) and by $\mathfrak{g}^\ddag/G$ the space of admissible coadjoint orbits, where $\mathfrak{g}$ is the Lie algebra of $G.$ It was pointed out by Lipsman that the correspondence between $\mathfrak{g}^\ddag/G$ and $\widehat{G}$ is bijective. Under some assumption on $G,$ we prove that the Lipsman mapping \begin{eqnarray*} \Theta:\mathfrak{g}^\ddag/G &\longrightarrow&\widehat{G}\\ \mathcal{O}&\longmapsto&\pi_\mathcal{O} \end{eqnarray*} is a homeomorphism.
