Abstract: The spectrometer SPI, one of the two main instruments of the INTEGRAL spacecraft, has strong capabilities in the field of Gamma-Ray Burst (GRB) detection. In its 16° (FoV) SPI is able to trigger and to localize GRBs with an accuracy for strong bursts better than 1°. The expected GRB detection rate is about one per month.
