The long GRB 231004A (Fermi GBM Final Real-time Localization: Fermi GBM team,
GCN Circ. 34795) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray
Burst Monitor (CGBM) at 08:23:32.70 UTC on 4 October 2023
(http://cgbm.calet.jp/cgbm_trigger/flight/1380443018/).
The burst signal was seen by only the SGM detector.

The burst light curve shows a multi-peaked structure that starts
at T+2.1 sec, peaks at T+2.9 sec, and ends at T+4.1 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 1.7 +/- 0.2 sec
and 1.1 +/- 0.3 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.
