on behalf of the AGILE Team, report:

"SuperAGILE detected a gamma ray burst on 31 March 2010, at 21:08:38 UT.
The event had a duration of about 30 s in the 20-60 keV energy range,
with a multi-peak structure. AGILE is currently operating in a  
spinning mode and the reported duration may be a lower limit to the  
GRB duration.

The burst position was reconstructed as (RA, Dec)
(302.987, -11.067) deg, which is:

RA(J2000)  = 20h 11m 56.95s
Dec(J2000) = -11d 04' 02.04"

with an uncertainty of 6' radius to account for possible systematics  
error due to the spinning mode.

The GRB is not detected by the AGILE/MCAL (above 350 keV) nor AGILE/GRID
(30 MeV - 30 GeV)."
