The SuperDARN (Super Dual Auroral Radar Network) experiment is a multi-national effort to develop chains of coherent HF radars world wide in order to obtain instantaneous large scale coverage of the magnetospheric plasma convection at high spatial and temporal resolution. We will review the scientific context of the experiment. The role of SuperDARN in our understanding of Sun-Earth relations will be emphasized through its numerous scientific objectives. The principle of the experiment will be described and specific capabilities and achievements presented, as well as its implication in the Space Weather program. Finally, the implementation of SuperDARN radars at Dome C is presented together with the prospective global extension of the network in both hemispheres.
