The detection of the gravitational wave counterpart GRB 170817A, underluminous compared to the cosmological GRB population by a factor of 10,000, motivates significant effort in detecting and localizing a dim, nearby, and slightly off-axis population of short GRBs. Swift/BAT is the most sensitive GRB detector in operation, and the only one that regularly localizes GRBs to arcminute precision, critical to rapid followup studies. However, the utility of BAT in targeted sub-threshold searches had…
