Using the data set from T-120 to T+302 sec from recent telemetry downlinks,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 070318 (trigger #271019)
(Cummings, et al., GCN Circ. 6210). The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 48.486, -42.950 deg which is
RA(J2000) = 03h 13m 56.6s
Dec(J2000) = -42d 57' 1.1"
with an uncertainty of 0.8 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 80%.
The mask-weighted lightcurve is a single FRED peak starting at ~T-10sec,
peaking at ~T+2 sec, and returning to background at around T+120 sec.
There is the possibility of weak peaks at ~T+140 and T+170 sec at the
~3-sigma level. T90 (15-350 keV) is 63 +- 3 sec (estimated error
The time-averaged spectrum from T-1.0 to T+89.4 is best fit by a simple
power-law model. The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.44 +- 0.08. The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 2.3 +- 0.1 x 10^-6 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+1.94 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.6 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec. All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
