The long GRB 210723A (Swift detection: Sbarrato et al., GCN Circ. 30485,
Krimm and Barthelmy, GCN Circ. 30495; Fermi GBM Observation:
Lesage et al., GCN Circ. 30499;
https://gcn.gsfc.nasa.gov/other/210723A.gcn3) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray
Burst Monitor (CGBM) at 14:46:05.572 UTC on 23 July 2021
(http://cgbm.calet.jp/cgbm_trigger/flight/1311086521/index.html).
The burst signal was seen only by the SGM detector.

The burst light curve shows a single-pulse structure which starts
at T+0.9 sec, peaks at T+12.6 sec,and ends at T+22.0 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 17.2 +- 3.2 sec and
10.6 +- 3.2 sec (40-1000 keV), respectively.

The ground processed light curve is available at

http://cgbm.calet.jp/cgbm_trigger/ground/1311086521/

The CALET data used in this analysis are provided by
the Waseda CALET Operation Center located at the Waseda University.
