Abstract

The AGILE satellite detected the long GRB 211023A at T0 = 2021-10-23 13:07:58 s (UTC), reported by Fermi GBM (GCNs #30958, #30965) and Fermi LAT (GCN #30961). The burst is clearly visible in the AGILE scientific ratemeters of the SuperAGILE (SA; 20-60 keV), MiniCALorimeter (MCAL; 0.4-100 MeV), and AntiCoincidence (AC; 50-200 keV) detectors. The event lasted about 45 s and it released a total number of 5300 counts in the SA detector (above a background rate of 90 Hz), 64325 counts in the MCAL detector (above a background rate of 1200 Hz), and 233020 counts in the AC detector (above a background rate of 2810 Hz). The AGILE ratemeter light curves can be found at http://www.agilescienceapp.it/notices/GRB211023A_AGILE_RM.png . The event also triggered a partial high time resolution MCAL data acquisition, from T1 = 2021-10-23 13:07:32.91 s +/- 0.01 (UTC) to T2 = 2021-10-23 13:08:05.20 +/- 0.01 s (UTC), and released 12480 counts in the detector, above a background rate of 620 Hz. The time-integrated spectrum of the first 17 s of the burst can be fitted in the energy range 0.4-50 MeV with a single power-law with ph. ind. = -2.45 (-0.27/+0.34), resulting in a reduced chi-squared of 0.89 (75 d.o.f.) and a fluence of 1.3e-05 ergs/cm^2 (90% confidence level), in the same energy range.
