 report on behalf of the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor Team:

"At 10:46:08.33 UT on 25 May 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM)
triggered and located GRB 230525A (trigger 706704373/230525449).
The Fermi GBM Final Real-time Localization was reported in GCN 33877.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 19 degrees.

The GBM light curve consists of single peak with a duration (T90)
of 0.12 s (50-300 keV). The time-averaged spectrum
from T0-0.06 to T0+0.06 s is best fit by
a power law function with an exponential high-energy cutoff.
The power law index is -0.80 +/- 0.09 and the cutoff energy,
parameterized as Epeak, is 789 +/- 148 keV.

The event fluence (10-1000 keV) in this time interval is
(8.6 +/- 0.4)E-07 erg/cm^2. The 64-ms peak photon flux measured
starting from T0-0.064 s in the 10-1000 keV band is 25 +/- 1 ph/s/cm^2.

The spectral analysis results presented above are preliminary;
final results will be published in the GBM GRB Catalog:
