Mereghetti (INAF IASF-Milano, Italy)\n\non behalf of the INTEGRAL multi-messenger collaboration:\nhttps://www.astro.unige.ch/cdci/integral-multimessenger-collaboration \n\nUsing INTEGRAL/SPI-ACS realtime data (following [1]) we have performed\na search for a prompt gamma-ray counterpart of S190701ah (GCN 24950).\n\nAt the time of the event (2019-07-01 20:33:06 UTC, hereafter T0),\nINTEGRAL was operating in nominal mode. The peak of the event\nlocalization probability was at an angle of 75 deg with respect to the\nspacecraft pointing axis. This orientation implies strongly suppressed\n(18% of optimal) response of ISGRI, strongly suppressed (36% of\noptimal) response of IBIS/Veto, and near-optimal (97% of optimal)\nresponse of SPI-ACS.\n\nThe background within +/-300 seconds around the event was very stable\n(excess variance 1.1).\n\nWe have performed a search for any impulsive events in INTEGRAL SPI-\nACS (as described in [2]) data.\n\nWe do not detect any significant counterparts and estimate a 3-sigma\nupper limit on the 75-2000 keV fluence of 1.6e-07 erg/cm^2 (within the\n50% probability containement region of the source localization) for a\nburst lasting less than 1 s with a characteristic short GRB spectrum\n(an exponentially cut off power law with alpha=-0.5 and Ep=600 keV)\noccurring at any time in the interval within 300 s around T0. For a\ntypical long GRB spectrum (Band function with alpha=-1, beta=-2.5, and\nEp=300 keV), the derived peak flux upper limit is ~1.4e-07 (5e-08)\nerg/cm^2/s at 1 s (8 s) time scale in 75-2000 keV energy range.\n\nFor the mean reported distance 1045.0 Mpc this corresponds to the\nlimit on the total isotropic equivalent energy in 1 s of 2.2e+49 erg\nfor the short GRB spectrum and for a long GRB spectrum isotropic\nequivalent luminosity in 1 s (8 s) of 1.8e+49 erg/s (6.5e+48 erg/s)\n\n\n\nAll results quoted are preliminary.\n\nThis circular is an official product of the INTEGRAL Multi-Messenger\nteam.\n\n[1] Savchenko et al. 2017, A&A 603, A46 [2] Savchenko et al. 2012, A&A\n541A, 122S"
