The AGILE satellite detected the long GRB 220307B at
T0 = 2023-02-07 04:40:48 s (UTC) (CALET trig. 1359779945).

The burst is clearly visible in the AGILE scientific ratemeters of the
MiniCALorimeter (MCAL; 0.4-100 MeV) and in all the five panels of the
system (AC Top, 50-200 keV; AC Lat, 80-200 keV). The event lasted about 14
s and it
released a total number of 15515 counts in the MCAL detector (above a
background rate of 996 Hz),
and 49298 counts in the AC Top detector (above a background rate of 2674
The AGILE ratemeters light curves can be found at .

The event also triggered a (partial) high-time resolution MCAL data
from T0-1 s to T0+5 s (UTC), and released 116 counts in the detector, above
a background rate of 67 Hz. The MCAL light curve can be found

Additional analysis of AGILE data is in progress. Automatic MCAL GRB alert
