report on behalf of the MAXI team:
MAXI/GSC performed scanning observations at the region of
GRB 151027A (Maselli et al. GCN 18478) for 48 sec each
at the centroid time 03:38:56, 1168 s before the Swift trigger, and
05:11:32, 4388 s after the Swift trigger.
No positive 4-10 keV flux was obtained at the former scan transit
with the 3 sigma upper limit of 0.037 photons/cm2/s (~ 31 mCrab).
At the latter scan transit, the 4-10 keV flux was 0.0166 +/- 0.0175
photons/cm2/s (~ 14 +/- 15 mCrab).
The detection is not significant, but the flux is consistent with
the interpolation from the Swift/XRT light curve (V. D'Elica et al. #18509).
