The long GRB 221017A (MAXI/GSC detection: Nawa et al., GCN Circ. 32777;
IPN triangulation: Kozyrev et al., GCN Circ 32787)  was detected in the 
ground analysis of the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM) data around 
05:29:49 UTC on October 17, 2022 (referenced to GCN Circ 32787). 
The burst signal was seen by all CGBM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a multi-peaked structure that starts
at T-20.5 sec, peaks at T+176.6 sec and ends at T+670.4 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 191.9 +/- 44.4 sec
and 52.7 +/- 0.5 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 Waseda University.
