Exclusive insights from Nagra archives continues with part two of thirty... The JBR, or Junior Body Recorder, was a subminiature body wearable tape recorder, developed by Nagra-Kudelski in Cheseaux-sur-Lausanne (Switzerland) in the mid-1980s as the successor to the Nagra SN. The device can record two independent audio channels for up to 2 hours and was initially developed for the FBI and two other US Government agencies. 

It was intended for covert operations, surveillance and wiretaps. The existence of the JBR was kept secret for many years.
