The long GRB 230908A (AstroSat CZTI detection: Navaneeth et al.,
GCN Circ. 34645; GRBAlpha detection: Dafcikova et al., GCN
Circ. 34647; Swift/BAT-GUANO detection: Tohuvavohu et al.,
GCN Circ. 34661) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor 
(CGBM) at 16:41:17.84 UTC on 8 September 2023
The burst signal was seen by all CGBM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a single pulse that starts
at T+2.1 sec, peaks at T+4.1 sec, and ends at T+9.6 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 6.2 +/- 0.6 sec
and 2.7 +/- 0.2 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.
