We consider the control allocation problem in a spacecraft thruster configuration. It consists on the determination of the force command to be sent to each thruster in order to point the total torque and/or thrust vectors. Here, we state four possible practical problems and propose a control allocation algorithm based on a subgradient optimization, which is shown to be faster than existing allocators.
