The long GRB 230827B (Fermi GBM Observation: Hamburg et al.,
GCN Circ. 34584; VZLUSAT-2 detection: Dafcikova et al., GCN 
Circ. 34585) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM)
at 06:08:28.36 UTC on 27 July 2023
The burst signal was seen by only the SGM detector.

The burst light curve shows a multi-peaked structure that starts
at T+2.3 sec, peaks at T+2.7 sec, and ends at T+87.7 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 79.6 +/- 3.7 sec
and 57.4 +/- 2.5 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.
