The CALET experiment is installed on the international space station and has as its main scientific objective the precise measurement of electron + positron spectrum in cosmic rays higher than TeV. Such measures are of great interest in the indirect research of dark matter and the study of nearby sources. Secondary goals are the measurement of the spectra of the hadonic components and the B / C ratio. The data acquisition phase started in the fall of 2015 and are currently undergoing various data analysis activities within the collaboration. The proposed program envisages the continuation of ongoing analyses, in particular the measurement of the electron + positron spectrum which is the main scientific objective of the experiment.
