The long GRB 230703A (Fermi GBM Trigger Number 710117592;
GRID detection: Wang et al., GCN Circ. 34188) triggered the 
CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM) at 22:53:04.92 UTC 
on 3 July 2023
The burst signal was seen by all CGBM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a double-peaked structure that starts
at T+2.1 sec, peaks at T+4.0 sec, and ends at T+17.5 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 13.5 +/- 0.6 sec
and 7.9 +/- 0.4 sec (40-1000 keV), respectively.

The ground-processed light curve is available at

The CALET data used in this analysis are provided by
the Waseda CALET Operation Center located at Waseda University.
