The AGILE satellite detected the GRB 230524A at T0 =  2023-05-24 06:06:35 s
(UTC), reported by Fermi GBM (GCN #33864).
The burst is clearly visible in the AGILE scientific ratemeters of the
MiniCALorimeter (MCAL; 0.4-100 MeV), and AntiCoincidence (AC; 50-200 keV)
The event lasted about 12 s and it released a total number
of 8723 counts in the MCAL detector (above a background rate of 595 Hz)
and 43686 counts in the AC-Top detector (above a background rate of 3171 Hz).
The AGILE ratemeters light curves can be found at .

Additional analysis of AGILE data is in progress. Automatic MCAL GRB alert Notices can be found at:
