A method and system for allocating a satellite payload terminal ' s (payload terminal) resources in response to a plurality of flow requests received by the payload terminal from one or more ground terminals is provided. The method includes, prioritizing the plurality of flow requests received at the payload terminal for a given epoch time based upon one or more attributes of said flow requests; and allocating resources of payload terminal to each said flow requests during said epoch time based on priority of flow requests. The attributes of said flow requests includes one or more of Quality of Service (QOS), rate request, and file size. The system includes one or more payload terminals having a processing unit capable of executing an optimization processes to allocate resources payload terminal resources in response to a plurality of flow request from one or more ground terminals.
