Abstract

During the first year of Compton GRO operations, more than 20 cosmic gamma‐ray burst‐detected by the BATSE instrument ‐ occurred inside the 1 sr field of view of the imaging gamma‐ray telescope COMPTEL. Using COMPTEL’s primary mode of operation (the telescope mode) direct images (with ∼1° GRB location accuracy) and event spectra (0.7 MeV – 30 MeV) with spectral resolution better than 10% FWHM have been obtained. In its secondary mode of burst operations, COMPTEL has recorded time resolved spectra (0.1 MeV – 10 MeV) from its large NaI detectors. This paper summarises the results on cosmic GRB sources obtained by COMPTEL during its first year of operation.
