(54)High throughput satellite


(57) A high throughput satellite including a transponder configured to receive radio wave signal from a market area, transmit the signal to a hub, receive a response signal from the hub, and transmit both the original signal and the response signal back to the market area. The satellite may also provide increased throughput by re-using spectrum in the Ka band. The satellite may also include a payload architecture which may be reconfigured such that, in response to control signals received from the ground, the payload architecture provides satellite communications to a first market area, a second market area, or both the first market area and the second market area.
