report on behalf of the Fermi GBM Team:

"At 05:48:21.55 UT on 10 September 2022, the Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor (GBM)
triggered and located GRB 220910A (trigger 684481706 / 220910242),
which was also detected by AGILE (Ursi et al. 2022, GCN 32540)
and AstroSAT/CZTI (Gopalakrishnan et al. 2022, GCN 32541).
The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data,
is RA = 9.1, Dec = -1.1 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to
J2000 00h 32m, -01d 06'), with a statistical uncertainty of 1.0 degrees
(radius, 1-sigma containment, statistical only; there is additionally a systematic error
which we have characterized as a core-plus-tail model, with 90% of GRBs having a
3.7 deg error and a small tail suffering a larger than 10 deg systematic error
[Connaughton et al. 2015, ApJS, 216, 32].

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight at the GBM trigger time is 89 degrees.

The GBM light curve shows a precursor and a main, subsequent peak
with a duration (T90) of about 4 s (50-300 keV).
The time-averaged spectrum from T0-4.5 s to T0+10.6 s is
best fit by a Band function with Epeak = 357 +/- 8 keV,
alpha = -0.69 +/- 0.01, and beta = -2.51 +/- 0.06

The event fluence (10-1000 keV) in this time interval is
(4.69 +/- 0.03)E-05 erg/cm^2. The 1-sec peak photon flux measured
starting from T0+6.85 s in the 10-1000 keV band
is 76.9 +/- 0.6 ph/s/cm^2.

The spectral analysis results presented above are preliminary;
final results will be published in the GBM GRB Catalog:  <>
