Parmiggiani (INAF/OAS-Bologna), M. Pilia (INAF/OA-Cagliari), F. Longo (Univ.
Trieste, and INFN Trieste) report on behalf of the AGILE Team:

In response to the LIGO/Virgo GW event S200105ae at T0 = 2020-01-05
16:24:26.057 (UT), a preliminary analysis of the AGILE minicalorimeter (MCAL)
triggered data found no data acquisitions, due the satellite passage in the
South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) region.

The AGILE-MCAL detector is a CsI detector with a 4 pi FoV, sensitive in the
energy range 0.4 - 100 MeV. Additional analysis of AGILE data is in progress.
