Sounds like a private clone of NTIS where a 18 minute VHS video tape on charts 
and projections sells for $110US.  I believe the above goes for $11US for the 
documentation and $50US for the FORTRAN code.

At least NTIS does not forbid export.

What BS and complete nonsense!!

Interesting: I could not find an author associated with the product--maybe it 
is Dr. Wallis.
