The scientific objectives of the ISPM Unified Radio and Plasma (URAP) wave experiment are twofold: the determination of the direction and polarization of distant radio sources for remote sensing of the heliosphere, and the detailed study of local wave phenomena which determine the transport coefficients of the ambient plasma. After a brief discussion of these scientific objectives, a comprehensive description of the experiment is presented.
