Using the data set from T-239 to T+963 sec from the recent telemetry
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 230228A (trigger #1156572)
(Dichiara, et al., GCN Circ. 33378). The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 18.397, 44.495 deg which is
RA(J2000) = 01h 13m 35.3s
Dec(J2000) = +44d 29' 41.9"
with an uncertainty of 1.5 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 78%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows a Fast Rise Exponential Decay single
T90 (15-350 keV) is 2.18 +- 0.40 sec (estimated error including
The time-averaged spectrum from T-0.05 to T+2.53 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model. The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.66 +- 0.17. The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 3.6 +- 0.4 x 10^-07
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+0.18 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 3.0 +- 0.4 ph/cm2/sec. All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
