Pulsations with a period near 4.45 s, consistent with GRO J1750-27, have been detected with the 12-50 keV band of the GBM NaI detectors since December 13. The orbitally corrected pulse frequency in the interval of December 16.0-19.0 was 224.6179(2) mHz.

The last outburst of this source was in 2008.
