The Argentinian Space Agency (CONAE) has beenpursuing the development of segmented satellite architectures asa novel strategy to reduce the cost and improve responsivenessof space access. Among the key enablers for these architectures,wireless communication is likely to be the most critical as itrequires to operate on a highly dynamic, sparse and extremeenvironments. In this work, we analyze and derive the mainspecifications that a communication system for segmented architectures(CSSA) must support. In particular, we provide anabstract model to predict the access time to segmented systems tolater propose a layered arrangement of the main specificationsfor the CSSA. Finally, we analyze by simulation a particularCSSA configuration in a simple yet representative scenario withan along-track flight formation.
