One year after the beginning of its most recent outburst (ATels #3193, #3202, #3210, #3218), the faint neutron-star X-ray transient SAX J1806.5-2215 (in't Zand et al. 1998, NuPhS, 69, 228) was found (using a Swift/XRT observation) to be still in outburst in February 2012 (Atel #3926). At the same time, the Galactic Center region could be observed again by INTEGRAL. We have analyzed the first set of IBIS/ISGRI observations on the source collected between 10 and 19 February 2012 (satellite revolutions 1139-1142; effective exposure ~26 ks), that were quasi-simultaneous with the Swift/XRT observation reported in the ATel #3926.
