The Oriented Scintillation Spectrometer Experiment detected over 80 cosmic gamma-ray bursts from mid-April to late November 1991. Data at 16 ms resolution were accumulated from its large-area NaI shields in response to BATSE triggers. Rates in excess of 5000 cts16 ms were observed from the 1991 May 3 burst. Bursts on June 1 and August 7 were observed in the spectrometers aperture. Preliminary information on both the spectrum and location of the source of the June 1 burst are provided. Plans for future observations and analyses of bursts are discussed.
