report on behalf of the AstroSat CZTI collaboration:
Analysis of AstroSat CZTI data with the CIFT framework (Sharma et al.,
2021, JApA, 42, 73) showed the detection of the long (or possibly
lensed) GRB 220627A which was also detected by Fermi GBM (Fermi GBM
team, GCN 32278; Roberts et al., GCN 32288), Fermi-LAT (Lalla et al.,
GCN 32283), Swift-BAT-GUANO (Raman et al., GCN 32287), Konus-Wind
(Frederiks et al., GCN 32295), and Swift-XRT (Gropp et al. GCN 32302).
AstroSat CZTI was in the South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) region during the
first burst episode. About 1000s after the first burst, CZTI detected
the second burst episode that was also reported by Fermi-GBM (GCN
32288), and Konus-Wind (GCN 32295). This burst was clearly detected in
the 20-200 keV energy range. The light curve peaks at 2022-06-27
21:38:49.500 UTC. The measured peak count rate associated with the burst
is 233 (+43, -41) counts/s above the background in the combined data of
all four quadrants, with a total of 2707 (+454, -447) counts. The local
mean background count rate was 500 (+3, -4) counts/s. Using cumulative
rates, we measure a T90 of 43 (+2, -12) s.
CZTI GRB detections are reported regularly on the payload site at
http://astrosat.iucaa.in/czti/?q=grb. CZTI is built by a TIFR-led
consortium of institutes across India, including VSSC, URSC, IUCAA, SAC,
and PRL. The Indian Space Research Organisation funded, managed, and
facilitated the project.
