report on behalf of the Insight-HXMT team:
At 2019-05-15T04:33:03.000 (T0), Insight-HXMT/HE detected
GRB 190515A(trigger ID: HEB190515189) in a routine search of the data,
which was also triggered by Fermi/GBM (GCN#24550), Fermi/LAT (D. Kocevski
et al., GCN#24560) and Swift/XRT (M. J. Moss et al., GCN#24553).
The Insight-HXMT/HE light curve mainly consists of single
pulse with a duration (T90) of 0.44 s measured from T0+0.02 s.
The 1-ms peak rate, measured from T0+0.20 s, is 5641 cnts/sec.
The total counts from this burst is 1906 counts.
All measurements above are made with the CsI detectors operating in the
regular mode with the energy range of about 80-800 keV (deposited energy).
Only gamma-rays with energy greater than about 200 keV can penetrate
the spacecraft and leave signals in the CsI detectors installed inside
of the telescope.
Insight-HXMT is the first Chinese space X-ray telescope, which was
funded jointly by the China National Space Administration (CNSA) and
the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
