Abstract: Unpredictable systemic accidents, normal accidents, will occur in highly-complex large-scale space systems. To mitigate the catastrophic consequences of normal accidents, containment engineering will need to rely upon adequate logistics infrastructures provided by transform logistics channels to minimize consequential risk to target systems. The resource requirements of such an in situ logistics infrastructure to support the primary logistics channels of target systems may be orders of magnitude larger than current models estimate.
