In response to the LIGO/Virgo GW event S190706ai at T0 = 2019-07-06 22:26:41.345 (UT),
a preliminary analysis of the AGILE minicalorimeter (MCAL) triggered data found no
event candidates within a time interval covering +/- 15 s from the LIGO/Virgo T0.
At the T0, about 54% of the S190706ai 90% c.l. localization region was accessible
to the AGILE MCAL. Three-sigma upper limits (ULs) are obtained for a 1 s integration
time at different celestial positions within the accessible S190706ai localization
region, from a minimum of 1.6E-06 erg cm^-2 to a maximum of 2.2E-06 erg cm^-2
(assuming as spectral model a single power law with photon index 1.5).
The AGILE-MCAL detector is a CsI detector with a 4 pi FoV, sensitive in the energy
range 0.4-100 MeV. Additional analysis of AGILE data is in progress.
