Team:

The AGILE satellite detected the GRB 200714E reported by Fermi-GBM (GCN
#28098, trigger 616444510.078062 / 200714774), occurring at T0 = 2020-07-14
18:35:05 s (UTC).

The event is clearly visible in the scientific ratemeters (RMs) of the
SuperAGILE detector (18-60 keV). The light curve shows a double-peaked FRED
profile, lasting ~13 s and releasing ~1200 counts. The SuperAGILE RMs light
curve can be found at

Additional analysis of AGILE data is in progress.
