During the observations of the SNR RXJ1713.7-3946, performed
from 2010 August 12 at 00:14 to 2010 August 14 at 16:02 (UTC; PI R. Terrier),
INTEGRAL detected hard X-ray emission from a position consistent with
that of the recently discovered transient XMMSL1 J171900.4-353217.
The source was within the IBIS/ISGRI FOV for a total exposure time
of 170 ks and was detected at a significance level of 6.5 sigma
(20-40 keV energy band). The best fit position obtained from the OSA
software is at RA: 259.738 DEC: -35.508 (J2000), with an associated error
of 3.9 arcmin. The ISGRI spectrum is best fit with a power-law model
of photon index Gamma=2.7-0.9+1.3 and the estimated flux is
3.0e-11 ergs/cm^2/s (20-40 keV energy band). The count-rate of the
source slightly increased in the latest part of the observation.
XMMSL1 J171900.4-353217 was not detected in the ISGRI hard energy band
(40-80 keV) and the estimated 3 sigma upper limit on the X-ray flux
is 4 mCrab.
The source was also in the Jem-X FOV (total exposure time 24 ks),
but not detected. We estimated a 3 sigma upper limit on the source
flux of 6 mCrab (3-10 keV energy band).
Further INTEGRAL observations of the region comprising
XMMSL1 J171900.4-353217 are ongoing. A Swift follow-up observation
has been requested.
