GCN Circular 12179
A. von Kienlin (MPE) and Chryssa Kouveliotou (NASA/MSFC) report on behalf of the Fermi GBM Team: "At 12:47:54.38 UT on 14 July 2001, the Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor triggered (trigger 332340476 / 110714533) on a very short event with a soft spectrum. The source of the emission was later identified as a new source, Swift J1822.3-1606 (Cummings et al. GCN Circ. 12159). The GBM on-ground location is consistent with the Swift position. The event duration is approximately 8 ms. Its spectrum is adequately fit with either an optically thin thermal bremsstrahlung (OTTB) model of kT = 37 +/- 5 keV or a power law with an exponential cutoff (COMPT) with index = 0.2 +/- 0.6 and Epeak = 40 +/-3 keV. The event fluence (10-1000 keV) is ~4 x E-08 erg/cm2. Visual observation of the GBM data revealed at least three and possibly four additional events near the trigger time ranging in duration between 10 - 30 ms. Preliminary analysis indicates a harder spectrum for these non-triggered events. "
