on behalf of the GRS-Odyssey GRB team, report:

The long duration GRB 180703A
(Fermi-LAT detection: Racusin et al., GCN Circ. 22883;
Fermi-GBM detection: Poolakkil and Meegan, GCN Circ. 22896;
AstroSat CZTI detection: Sharma et al., GCN Circ. 22900)
was detected by Fermi (GBM trigger 552344505), Konus-Wind,
INTEGRAL (SPI-ACS), Mars-Odyssey (HEND), and Swift (BAT),
at about 75700 s UT (21:01:40). The burst was outside the
coded field of view of the BAT.

We have triangulated it to a Konus-HEND annulus centered at
RA(2000)=312.437 deg (20h 49m 45s)  Dec(2000)=-22.995 deg (-22d 59' 40"),
whose radius is 54.738 +/- 1.217 deg (3 sigma).

The annulus is consistent with, but does not reduce the area of, the LAT
position reported by Racusin et al. (GCN Circ. 22883).
