Using the data set from T-826 to T+962 sec from the recent telemetry
downlink, we report further analysis of BAT GRB 230322B (trigger #1161127)
(Cenko et al., GCN Circ. 33505).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 16.550, -47.709 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  01h 06m 12.1s
   Dec(J2000) = -47d 42' 31.2"
with an uncertainty of 1.7 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 92%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows a single-peaked FRED-like structure
that starts at ~T-3 s, peaks at ~T0, and ends at ~T+11 s.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 11.61 +- 2.17 sec (estimated error including

The time-averaged spectrum from T-2.41 to T+11.12 sec is best fit by a
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
2.07 +- 0.26.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 3.7 +- 0.6 x 10^-7
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+0.02 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.1 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
