of the Konus-Wind team, report:

The long-duration GRB 130528A
(Swift-BAT trigger 556870: D'Elia et al., GCN 14711;
Cummings et al., GCN 14718)
triggered Konus-Wind at T0=60085.301s UT (16:41:25.301).

The light curve shows a pulse from ~T0-5 s to ~T0+10s,
followed by weaker and softer emission out to ~T0+60s.

The emission is seen up to 7 MeV.

The Konus-Wind light curve of this GRB is available at

As observed by Konus-Wind, the burst
had a fluence of (8.0 � 0.7)x10-6 erg/cm2,
and a 64-ms peak flux, measured from T0+0.640s,
of (1.7 � 0.2)x10-6 erg/cm2/s
(both in the 20 keV - 10 MeV energy range).

The time-integrated spectrum (measured from T0 to T0+57.600 s)
is best fit in the 20 keV - 15 MeV range
by the cutoff power law model with the following parameters:
the photon index alpha = -1.30 � 0.15,
the peak energy Ep = 93 � 9 keV,
chi2 = 90/98 dof.

The spectrum at the maximum count rate
(measured from T0+0.256 to T0+5.888 s)
is best fit in the 20 keV - 15 MeV range
by the GRB (Band) function with the following model parameters:
the low-energy photon index alpha = -0.21 � 0.23,
the high energy photon index beta = -2.6 � 0.3,
the peak energy Ep = 142 � 14 keV,
chi2 = 70/97 dof.

All the quoted results are preliminary.
