Pluton is a system of deep space communications and a planetary radar. It was built near Yevpatoria in 1960.

The Pluton complex supported all the Soviet space programs until 1978, when the Yevpatoria RT-70 radio telescope was built. The Pluton complex was the world's highest capacity deep space communication system prior to Goldstone in 1966.
