(Received 25 December 2007; in final form 10 January 2008 ) The small satellite renaissance began in the 1980s and is changing the economics of space. Technological trends have supported the advancement of smallsatellites in the 1–500 kg range. The number of countries actively participating has grown substantially during the past years. Satellite constellations (groups of satellites working in concert) are emerging as a powerful and effective application. In this paper, we focus on the small satellites than can perform remote sensing or Earth observation tasks. An overview is presented of the small satelliteliterature on Earth observation. The aim of the survey is threefold: an introduction for those new to the field, an overview for those working in the field and a reference for those searching for literature on a specific application for Earth observation. Small satellite programmes are classified according to the geographic regions. The small satellite industry and small satellite systems are...
