report on behalf of the Fermi GBM Team:

"At 18:45:37.714 UT on 24 July 2015, the Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor
triggered and located GRB 150724B (trigger 459456341 / 150724782)
which was also detected by the Fermi/LAT (Bissaldi et al. 2008, GCN
18065). The GBM on-ground location is consistent with the Fermi/LAT

The on-ground calculated location, using the GBM trigger
data, is RA = 350.92, DEC = +10.160 (J2000 degrees,
equivalent to 23h 24m, 10d 10'), with an uncertainty
of 1.05 degrees (radius, 1-sigma containment,
statistical only).

The GBM light curve consists of two emission episodes
with a total duration (T90) of about 38 s (50-300 keV).
The time-averaged spectrum from T0-6.1 s to T0+46 s is
adequately fit by a power law function with an exponential
high-energy cutoff.  The power law index is -0.75 +/- 0.02 and
the cutoff energy, parameterized as Epeak, is 729 +/- 35 keV.

The event fluence (10-1000 keV) in this time interval is
(3.55 +/- 0.04)E-5 erg/cm^2. The 1-sec peak photon flux measured
starting from T0+40 s in the 8-1000 keV band is 8.3 +/- 0.2 ph/s/cm^2.

The spectral analysis results presented above are preliminary;
final results will be published in the GBM GRB Catalog."
