This software was designed as a processor of microwave reflectometer raw output data. The reflectometer measures the power of the reflected wave of a given sample in a wide frequency band. It provides the extraction of a complex-valued reflection coefficient from absolute-valued data utilizing the Fourier holography concept. This concept brings the following algorithm of data processing:

- Measure the power reflection coefficient of a given sample under investigation.
- Measure the power reflection coefficient of a given metal sheet placed at the same distance from the horn as the sample frontal plane.
- Transform both characteristics from the frequency domain to the time domain with discrete Fourier transform.
- Apply weight windows to the signals suppressing artifacts of reflection from horn throat and aperture, fastening tools, and other objects present in the laboratory.
- Transform both characteristics from the time domain to the frequency domain and divide one to the other. The complex-valued reflection coefficient is obtained as a result.
