The new, small satellite-based gamma-ray detectors, like Cubesats Applied for MEasuring and Localizing Transients, will provide a new way to detect gamma transients in the multimessenger era. The efficiency and the detection capabilities of such a system will be compared with current missions, for example, Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM). We used the Fermi GBM's observed short gamma-ray burst light curves aggregated from observed discrete detector event for the simulation input. The corresponding direction-dependent detector response matrices were used to generate photon counts and light curves around a simulated event, enabling to determine the statistics. This method can be used in the future for trigger algorithm and detector system development, and also to estimate the efficiency of the data analysis pipeline regarding the observable gamma-ray bursts' parameters as well as other electromagnetic transients.
