D.Gotz (CEA-Saclay), S.Mereghetti, A.Paizis (IASF-Milano),  F. Fontani,
V.Beckmann, M. Beck (ISDC, Versoix), and J. Borkowski (CAMK, Torun) on
behalf of the IBAS Localization Team report:

A GRB lasting about 30 s has been detected by IBAS in IBIS/ISGRI data at
20:48:08 UT of October 3. The coordinates (J2000)  are:

RA = 285.0256 [degrees]
DEC= +16.6914[degrees]

with an uncertainty of 1.5 arcmin (90% c.l.).

A preliminary analysis gives a peak flux in the 20-200 keV range of  
3 ph/cmq/s (1-s integration time) and a fluence over the same energy
range of about 6x10e-6 erg/cmq.

A plot of the light curve will be posted at
