Giommi, C. Pittori, (ASDC) and L. Salotti (ASI), on behalf of the AGILE 
Team, report:


"A quick look analysis of the AGILE GRID data of GRB 080514B (Rapisarda et 
al. GCN 7715) shows a possible detection at energies E>50 MeV at a 
position consistent with the SuperAGILE-IPN localization.

We have requested a ToO observation of the SuperAGILE-IPN error box with 
the Swift satellite. We encourage follow-up observations at other 
wavelengths."
