Using the data set from T-240 to T+960 sec from the recent telemetry
downlink, we report further analysis of BAT GRB 131127A (trigger
#579571) (Markwardt, et al., GCN Circ. 15516). The BAT
ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 332.714, 36.596 deg which is
RA(J2000) = 22h 10m 51.3s
Dec(J2000) = +36d 35' 46.9"
with an uncertainty of 1.8 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 39%.
The mask-weighted light curve has multiple peaks. The first set of
about 3 peaks occurs before the initial trigger between T-60 and T-38
sec. The main set of about 7-8 peaks occurs between T-5 and T+40 sec.
The peak emission occurs at about T+0 sec. T90 (15-350 keV) is 92.1 +-
10.2 sec (estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-59.4 to T+37.5 sec is best fit by a
simple power-law model. The power law index of the time-averaged
spectrum is 2.34 +- 0.16. The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 1.9 +-
0.2 x 10^-6 erg/cm2. The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T-0.54
sec in the 15-150 keV band is 1.3 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec. All the quoted
errors are at the 90% confidence level.
