When explaining the options of hosted payloads, SES WORLD SKIES uses a condominium example. In this case, the condo is the satellite and specific apartments are the hosted payloads. Here, a hosted payload is only part of the satellite (or apartment), yet it is beneficial to both the customer and the satellite provider. It is expected that the likey customer in these cases will soon be the military. There are also cases when the hosted payload takes up the entire satellite with a long-term contract.
