AGILE prompt follow-up of the LIGO/Virgo GW trigger event S190426c

In response to the public LIGO/Virgo gravitational wave (GW) alert of the on-going osservative run O3, with trigger event name S190426c at T0 = 2019-04-26T15:21:55.337 (UT), the AGILE Team performed a quick look follow-up analysis of the AGILE data.
The AGILE exposure around T0 covered most of the S190426c Ligo-Virgo localization region (from 75% to 100%).

Preliminary results AGILE MCAL and GRID results have been published in two GCN CIRCULARS:
GCN #24245: LIGO-Virgo S190426c: AGILE MCAL observation (M. Cardillo et al.)
GCN #24246: LIGO/Virgo S190426c: AGILE-GRID Observations (G. Piano et al.)
