Thanks.   I see it is the Primar system I read about before, possibly
with some updates. 

James - if you read over the OEM agreement, you will see that to
be approved would require committing to securing the software
in question so that users cannot (practically) get at the underlying
S-57 data.  

They very specifically do *not* want applications like OGR having
access where our goal is to capture as much of data model as possible
and translate to other formats (or even back to unencrypted S-57 format). 

No real point in asking I would say.
