Rotorcraft in the Performance Based Navigation International Civil Aviation Organization Implementation

Abstract

European Commision adopted in July new regulations about laying down airspace usage requirements and operating procedures concerning performance based navigation. It is next step in realization of the the global program PBN ICAO. At the 36th General Assembly of ICAO held in 2007, the Republic of Poland agreed to ICAO resolution A36-23 which urges all States to implement PBN. In future aviation concepts the use of Performance Based Navigation (PBN) is considered to be a major Air Traffic Management (ATM) concept element. ICAO has drafted standards and implementation guidance for PBN in the ICAO Doc 9613 “PBN Manual”. The Based Performance Navigation Concept represents and shift from sensor-based to performance based navigation connected with criteria for navigation: accuracy, integrity, availability, continuity and functionality depending on the phase of the flight. Through PBN and changes in the communication, surveillance and ATM domain, many advanced navigation applications are possible to improve airspace efficiency, improve airport sustainability, reduce the environmental impact of air transport in terms of noise and emission, increase safety and improve flight efficiency.

Customer satisfaction under heterogeneous services of different self-service technologies

Abstract

This study aims to evaluate the customer satisfaction of different self-service technologies (SST) when different SSTs provide various services. This study compares overall customer satisfaction according to the four types of SSTs (Mobile Channel SST, ATM SST, Telephone SST and online SST) when SSTs provide heterogeneous services. We used both primary and secondary data. Primary data consisted of a survey questionnaire applied to a final sample size of 400 people. Data analysis was performed via ordered logistic regression. The results showed that customer satisfaction on different SSTs for different services positively associate with overall customer satisfaction in the banking sector, and this study finds customer satisfaction of mobile banking (MB) more positively associate than other SSTs with customer satisfaction. This study conducted on one profit-making organization (bank) of Bangladesh. Therefore, the geographic bases of SST contexts limit the extension of our findings. Future investigation is needed for evaluating the customer satisfaction on non-profit organizations and educational sector. Understanding what factors determine customer’s satisfaction in the different services provided by each SSTs contribute to manage and coordinate multiple services delivered by various SSTs and to know the process of improving the customer satisfaction across the services offered. Previous investigations were focusing on the customer satisfaction when provided services and/or SSTs are homogeneous, but this study examines the customer satisfaction when both services and SSTs are heterogeneous. This study significantly impacts both the management and research of developing operations strategies for organizations.

Dividend Practices in Listed Companies: Study on the Manufacturing Sector of Bangladesh

Abstract

The dividend model of the listed manufacturing firms and the organizational policies related to dividend decisions are analyzed to reveal the contemporary state of the payout pattern in the capital market of Bangladesh. This study exhibits the settings of dividend disbursement in association with the diverse aspects of the firm such as industry segment of the firm, the age of the firms, size, leverage, risk, and earnings.

Luminescence dating of young coastal deposits from New Zealand using feldspar

Abstract

A new measurement protocol has been tested on K-feldspars from Whanganui Inlet and Parengarenga Harbour, New Zealand. A Single Aliquot Regenerative (SAR) dose protocol, using two successive infrared (IR) stimulations (post-IR IR SAR protocol) is setup for these young (<1000 years) coastal sediments. Significant anomalous fading (g2days=7 %/decade) is observed using the conventional IR signal measured at 50°C. In contrast, the fading rate of the IR signal measured at elevated temperature (150°C) after the IR stimulation at 50°C (a post-IR IR signal) is not significant (g2days≤ 1 %/decade). Surprisingly low residual infrared stimulated luminescence (IRSL) signals were observed for a surface sample, suggesting that accurate ages as young as ∼50 years can be obtained for these recent deposits. IRSL ages ranging between 48±6 years and 1050±50 years are obtained from six samples, indicating that sediment accumulation has occurred at the two sites during the last millennia, despite a falling trend in relative sea-level in Whanganui Inlet and a stable relative sea-level at Parengarenga Harbour.

Selected methods of securing the refining sector against crude oil price fluctuations

strategies by choosing different strike prices in the option. Figure 1 shows the potential results that could be achieved in the options listed for the WTI barrel on May 23, 2016, and expiring on June 16, 2016. The day when the hedge was formulated, the price of oil was $48 per barrel and it was the strike price of the At The Money (ATM) option. The ATM option is an option in which the strike price is equal to the price of the underlying instrument on the day the contract is concluded. The strike prices of the other options were 5% (ATM-5%, ATM+5%) and 10% (ATM-10
