Tempesta (TeleSpazio)  report on behalf of the AGILE Team:

We carried out further analysis of the AGILE/MCAL data of GRB 231117A (GCNs #35071, #35072, #35073, #35074, #35075, #35076, #35079, #35080, #35081, #35082, #35083, #35084).

The burst released 415 counts in the detector in 0.14s, above a background rate of 532 Hz.

The spectral analysis shows a clear component up to 5 MeV.

The time-integrated spectrum of the burst can be fitted in the energy range 0.4-2.0 MeV with a power-law model with alpha = -2.3 (+/-0.2). The fit results in a reduced chi-squared of 1.204 (21 d.o.f.) and a fluence of 2.4e-06 erg/cm^2, in the energy range 0.4-10 MeV.

Additional analysis of AGILE data is in progress. Automatic MCAL GRB alert Notices can be found at:
