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 a short GRB230217A which was
also detected by Fermi-GBM (Fermi GBM team, GCN Circ. 33338), Swift-BAT
(Moss et al., GCN Circ. 33339), AGILE/MCAL (Casentini et al., GCN Circ.
33343), Swift-XRT (Capalbi et al., GCN Circ. 33348) and Konus-Wind
(Svinkin et al., GCN Circ. 33349).
The source was clearly detected in the 20-200 keV energy range. The
light curve peaks at 2023-02-17 21:53:10.9 UTC. The measured peak count
rate associated with the burst is 6691 (+436, -444) counts/s above the
background in the combined data of all quadrants, with a total of 3487
(+142, -172) counts. The local mean background count rate was 454 (+9,
-10) counts/s. Using cumulative rates, we measure a T90 of 0.77 (+0.19,
It was also detected in the CsI anticoincidence (Veto) detector in the
100-500 keV energy range.
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.
