V. Sharma and D. Bhattacharya (IUCAA), V. Bhalerao (IIT-B), A. R. Rao (TIFR) and S. Vadawale (PRL) report on behalf of the Astrosat CZTI collaboration:

Analysis of Astrosat CZTI data showed the detection of a long GRB 180103A, which was also detected by Swift (Beardmore A. P. et al., GCN 22305).

The source was clearly detected in the 40-200 keV energy range. The light curve shows multiple peaks of emission with strongest peak at 01:10:08.500 UT, ~98 s after the Swift-BAT trigger. The measured peak count rate is 2009.4 cts/s above the background in combined data of four quadrants, with a total of 56951 cts. The local mean background count rate was 459 cts/s. Using cumulative rates, we measure a T90 of 147.1 s.

It was also clearly detected in the CsI anticoincidence (Veto) detector in the 100-500 keV energy range.

CZTI GRB detections are reported regularly on the payload site at CZTI is built by a TIFR-led consortium of institutes across India, including VSSC, ISAC, IUCAA, SAC and PRL. The Indian Space Research Organisation funded, managed and facilitated the project.
