S. Barthelmy, J. Cummings, H. Krimm, and D. Palmer,
on behalf of the Swift-BAT team, report:

A short-duration GRB 171030A has been detected by
Fermi (GBM trigger 531077390), INTEGRAL (SPI-ACS),
and Swift (BAT), so far, at about 62985 s UT (17:29:45).
The burst was outside the coded field of view of the BAT.

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box whose 
coordinates are:
   RA(2000), deg  Dec(2000), deg
    47.7467      -25.6001
    37.3056      -48.8763
   117.4353      -11.9668
   118.1759      -5.9280
The error box maximum dimension is 79.5 deg
(the minimum one is 5.9 deg).

This box may be improved.

The time history and spectrum will be given in forthcoming GCN
