The long GRB 231122B (GECAM detection: Wang et al., GCN
Circ. 35157; Glowbug gamma-ray detection: Cheung et al., GCN
Circ. 35161; Swift/BAT-GUANO detection: Ronchini et al., GCN
Circ. 35164) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM)
at 15:12:38.15 UTC on 22 November 2023
The burst signal was seen by all CGBM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a multi-peaked structure that starts
at T+2.5 sec, peaks at T+3.3 sec, and ends at T+41.7 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 34.0 +/- 1.0 sec
and 22.6 +/- 1.3 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.
