The long GRB 240128A (MAXI/GSC detection, Yamaoka et al., 
GCN Circ. 35646) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor
(CGBM) at 15:13:34.34 UTC on 28 January 2024
(http://cgbm.calet.jp/cgbm_trigger/flight/1390489809/).
The burst signal was seen by all CGBM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a multi-peaked structure that starts
at T+1.4 sec, peaks at T+10.8 sec, and ends at T+15.2 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 12.5 +/- 0.6 sec
and 7.2 +/- 0.6 sec (40-1000 keV), respectively.

The ground-processed light curve is available at

http://cgbm.calet.jp/cgbm_trigger/ground/1390489809/index.html

The CALET data used in this analysis are provided by
the Waseda CALET Operation Center located at Waseda University.
