(i.e. the Swift-BAT team):
  
Using the data set from T-61 to T+242 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 130912A (trigger #570465) (D'Elia, et al.,
GCN Circ. 15212).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 47.606, 13.999 deg which is
    RA(J2000)  =  03h 10m 25.6s
    Dec(J2000) = +13d 59' 55.7"
with an uncertainty of 1.6 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 31%.
  
The mask-weighted light curve shows two overlapping peaks.  T90 (15-350 keV) is
0.28 +- 0.03 sec (estimated error including systematics).
  
The time-averaged spectrum from T+0.00 to T+0.32 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.20 +- 0.20.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 1.7 +- 0.2 x 10^-07 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T-0.34 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 2.2 +- 0.3 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
level.
