Analysis of Lunar Laser Ranging data allows to test various elements of General Relativity like the gravitational 1/r^2 law, the constancy of the gravitational constant G and the equivalence principle. To be able to use the full potential of new high accuracy LLR data (like infrared tracking or future differential LLR data) for sophisticated relativity tests, the analysis software has to be improved and updated.
