Using the data set from T-61 to T+243 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 180102A (trigger #802999)
(Page et al. GCN Circ. 22292).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 203.078, 62.161 deg which is
  RA(J2000)  =  13h 32m 18.8s
  Dec(J2000) = +62d 09' 38.1"
with an uncertainty of 1.5 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 95%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows two overlapping pulses that starts
at ~ T-8 s and ends at ~ T+6 s. The main peak occurs at ~T+1 s.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 10.8 +- 1.7 sec (estimated error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T-7.62 to T+6.30 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
2.01 +- 0.18.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 3.5 +- 0.4 x 10^-7 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+0.80 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.0 +- 0.1 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
