The long GRB 230709B (Fermi-GBM Trigger 710614579; 
Fermi-GBM BALROG localization: Biltzinger et al., GCN Circ 34179;
GRBAlpha detection: Dafcikova et al., GCN Circ 34200) was detected
in the ground analysis of the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM)
data around 16:56:14.47 UTC on 9 July 2023 (referenced to 
Fermi-GBM Trigger 710614579). 
The burst signal was seen by HXM1 and SGM.

The burst light curve shows a single pulse that starts
at T+0.3 sec, peaks at T+3.5 sec, and ends at T+11.3 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 
9.9 +/- 0.6 sec and 5.4 +/- 1.1 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.
