and the CALET collaboration:

Using the CALET CALorimeter (CAL) data, we report GeV gamma-ray search
analysis associated to GRB 180715A (Ukwatta, et al., GCN Circ. 22947, 22951;
Hamburg and Meegan, GCN Circ. 22952; Torii et al., GCN Circ. 22956)

The CAL was operating in low energy trigger mode at the trigger time of
the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM).  We have searched for
gamma-ray events in the 1-10 GeV band from -60 sec to +60 sec from
the CGBM trigger time using the Swift-BAT position (Ukwatta et al.
GCN Circ. 22951) and found no candidates.  The 90% upper limit of CAL is
3.2e-7 erg/cm2/s (1-10 GeV) assuming a power-law spectrum of a photon
index of -2.

All the quoted values are preliminary.
