Using the data set from T-240 to T+651 sec from recent telemetry downlinks,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 131227A (trigger #582184)
(Oates, et al., GCN Circ. 15616). The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 67.369, 28.879 deg which is
RA(J2000) = 04h 29m 28.5s
Dec(J2000) = +28d 52' 44.3"
with an uncertainty of 1.3 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 90%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows several overlapping peaks starting
at ~T-2 sec, peaking at ~T+2 sec, and ending at ~T+22 sec with a long low-level
tail out to ~T+100 sec. T90 (15-350 keV) is 18.0 +- 1.6 sec (estimated error
The time-averaged spectrum from T-1.19 to T+19.23 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model. The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.36 +- 0.12. The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 8.4 +- 0.6 x 10^-7 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+1.61 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.1 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec. All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
