If you are a good Java developer, you can help to add this dataset into this library. So the dataset is recognize as profiler feature datatype, and can be added to the IDV. The ADDE server is developed outside Unidata, here is the link: "http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/mcidas/doc/prog_man/2003/servers-3.html". There is some works can be done by you, and some work need to be in house. I don;t think the convert the file should be in your consideration here.
