MATISSE (Advanced Modeling of the Earth for Environment and Scenes Simulation) is an infrared background scene generator developed for computing natural background spectral radiance images. The code also provides atmospheric radiatives quantities along lines of sight. Spectral bandwidth ranges from 0.4 to 14 μm. Natural backgrounds include atmosphere, sea, land and high and low altitude clouds. The new version MATISSE-v2.0, released this year, has been designed to treat spatial multi resolution in the generated images in order to be able to reach metric spatial variability in pixels footprints. Moreover, MATISSE-v2.0 includes a new sea surface radiance model (water waves and surface optical properties) which depends on wind speed, wind direction and fetch value. Preliminary validations using radiometric measurements have been conducted concerning sea radiances and give promising results. In order to go further in the validation process of MATISSE-v2.0, comparisons with MODIS satellite images have been led. The results of comparing the simulated MATISSE images radiances with the MODIS observations show that the code is performing well. This paper gives a description of MATISSE-v2.0 new functionalities and focus on first results on comparison between MATISSE/MODIS images radiances.
