During the early stage of reusable launch vehicle (RLV) reentry flight, reaction control system (RCS) is the major attitude control device. RCS, which is much different from the atmospheric steer’s control, requires a well designed control allocation system to fit the attitude control in high altitude. In this paper, an indexed control method was proposed for RCS preallocation, a 0-1 integer programming algorithm was designed for RCS allocation controller, and then this RCS scheme’s effect was analyzed. Based on the specified flight mission simulation, the results show that the control system is satisfied. Moreover, several comparisons between the attitude control effect and RCS relevant parameters were studied.
