Using the data set from T-240 to T+962 sec from the recent telemetry

we report further analysis of BAT GRB 221202A (trigger #1142997)

(Caputo et al. GCN Circ. 33005).  The BAT ground-calculated position is

RA, Dec = 77.002, -59.836 deg which is

   RA(J2000)  =  05h 08m 00.5s

   Dec(J2000) = -59d 50' 09.0"

with an uncertainty of 2.1 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).

The partial coding was 85%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows a single peaked pulse.

T90 (15-350 keV) is 10.34 +- 1.21 sec (estimated error including

The time-averaged spectrum from T+1.03 to T+12.44 sec is best fit by a

power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is

1.64 +- 0.25.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 3.2 +- 0.6 x 10^-07

The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+3.31 sec in the 15-150 keV band

is 0.7 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
