Actually "Packet Service" IS a Network layer service, and the mission users in fact *do* need a Network layer service to get their data onto the space link. But this Network layer service is implemented by moving an Application layer SDU (the Space Packet) over another Application layer service (SLE) over a real Network layer service (IP) to finally get to the space Link layer.
