A GRB detected by GECAM (trigger at 2022-04-21 21:03:20.6 observation ID
00035461090, https://www.swift.psu.edu/guano/) was also detected by both
GRB detector units on board of the VZLUSAT-2 3U CubeSat
(https://www.vzlusat2.cz/en/). Note that the reported GECAM trigger is
~15s earlier than the onset of the GRB seen by VZLUSAT-2.
The data acquisition was performed by GRB detector units no. 0 and no.
1. The 38 sigma detection significance was confirmed at 2022-04-21
21:03:47 UTC. The long-duration GRB has the T90 duration of 62 s.
The light curve obtained by VZLUSAT-2 is available here:
GRB detectors on VZLUSAT-2 are a demonstration payload for a future
CubeSats constellation (Werner et al. Proc. SPIE 2018). Two GRB modules
of VZLUSAT-2 are placed in a perpendicular manner and each consists of a
75 x 75 x 5 mm3 CsI scintillator read out by a SiPM array, covering the
energy range from ~30 keV to ~1000 keV. VZLUSAT-2 was launched on 2022
January 13 from Cape Canaveral.
