The long GRB 231129C (Fermi GBM Final Real-time Localization: Fermi GBM team,
GCN Circ. 35217; Fermi GBM detection: Sharma at al., GCN Circ. 35221; BALROG 
localization: Preis et al., GCN Circ 35222; MAXI/GSC detection: Kawakubo et al., 
GCN Circ. 35223) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM) at 
19:10:15.03 UTC on 29 November 2023
The burst signal was seen by all CGBM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a single pulse that starts
at T+3.1 sec, peaks at T+4.7 sec, and ends at T+8.9 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 4.7 +/- 0.4 sec
and 2.2 +/- 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.
