and the CALET collaboration:

At 10:26:46.325 UTC on 15 June 2020, the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor
(CGBM) triggered on the long weak GRB 200615B (trigger 1276251981:,
which was also detected by the MAXI/GSC at T0(CGBM)+213 sec
(Miike et al. 2020, GCN Circ. 27960).
The burst signal was seen by all CGBM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a multi-peaked structure which starts at
T+3.8 sec and ends at T+48.8 sec. The T90 and T50 durations measured
by the SGM data are 40.0 +- 6.3 sec and 28.0 +- 9.5 sec (40-1000 keV),

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 the Waseda University.
