The long GRB 220708B (Swift/BAT-GUANO arcminute localization: 
Tohuvavohu et al., GCN Circ. 32345) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray
Burst Monitor (CGBM) at 02:06:55.120 UTC on 8 July 2022
The burst signal was seen by all CGBM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a single pulse which starts
at T+2.6 sec, peaks at T+4.8 sec, and ends at T+6.5 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 3.4 +/- 0.3 sec
and 1.4 +/- 0.2 sec (40-1000 keV), respectively.

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.
