ISTL is a software realizing numerical computations of the inverse scattering transform for electrical transmission lines. It provides an efficient solution to experimentally determining the distributed characteristic impedance of an electrical transmission line from the reflection coefficient measured at one end of the line. Its current applications are in the fields of electrical cable fault diagnosis and of civil engineering structure monitoring. In addition to inverse scattering transform algorithms, ISTL includes a numerical simulator generating reflection coefficients of user-specified transmission lines and a graphical user interface. It is registered at Agence pour la Protection des Programmes (APP) under the number IDDN.FR.001.120003.000.S.P.2010.000.30705. See http://people.rennes.inria.fr/Qinghua.Zhang/istl.html .
