    Abstract

    We propose to provide a gamma-ray burst monitor (GBM) for the CALET mission to monitor gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) together with the CALET Imaging Calorimeter detector. The major purpose is to derive a wide-band energy spectrum of GRBs over an unprecedented 9 decades of energy (from a few keV to a few TeV) in combination with the CALET tower detector. Hence it is desirable to have the CALET-GBM covering an energy range from a few keV to about 20 MeV to avoid a gap in the observational energy bands. The design of GBM is underway to fulfill this requirement. The current detector candidate is BGO, and a LaBr (Ce) scintillator which has a superior energy resolution to that of NaI(Tl). In this paper, design and expected performance of the CALET-GBM is shown.
