Using the data set from T-240 to T+645 sec from recent telemetry downlinks,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 111109A (trigger #507342)
(Pagani, et al., GCN Circ. 12548). The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 118.248, -41.588 deg, which is
RA(J2000) = 07h 52m 59.5s
Dec(J2000) = -41d 35' 18.3"
with an uncertainty of 1.9 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 91%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows a couple overlapping peaks starting
at ~T-5 sec, peaking at ~T+2 sec, and ending at ~T+20 sec. There is a
hint of possible precursor activity (~2 sigma) at ~T-110 sec. We note
that the burst location went out of the BAT FoV at ~T+120 sec (a slew
due to an observing constraint). T90 (15-350 keV) is 13.0 +- 3.2 sec
(estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-5.60 to T+8.40 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model. The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.86 +- 0.26. The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 2.4 +- 0.4 x 10^-7 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+1.40 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 0.5 +- 0.1 ph/cm2/sec. All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
