The folks at Because Operator have been focused on making a solid night vision recording device for as long as I have known them. One of their most notable products is the LPMR night vision recorder. It’s one of the better night vision accessories that I’ve seen, good for your PVS 31 or (prob’ly) whatever you’re using.

Here are the details about the Because Operator Low Profile Mission Recorder (LPMR) in their words:

Designed in house to be incredibly minimalistic and intuitive, we set out to build the most low profile, highest image quality, and light(est) weight recorder to date.

With a PVS-14 you are still keeping a light, handy setup with the ability to record your shenanigans.

The LPMR clips onto the eyecup retaining ring on a PVS 14, 15, and 31. A large percentage of military, police, and civilian units can use it because it clips onto any device using the same eyecup retaining ring. It is capable of taking up to a 128 gig micro SD card, netting 19 hours of recording. The recorder is powered by your choice of an external USB power bank, and the weight is focused on the front of the helmet.

The LPMR nets up to 19 hours of recording from your Sentinel, PVS 31, or other NVD.

The night vision unit records in 1-minute segments. So even if you experience a total power failure to the unit, you will not lose the files up to the time of failure. The unit is also able to record audio. It’s a perfect unit for night training, lessons learned, or for after-action reports from places-you-can’t-speak-about-without-killing-people. It might even be cool to record your big night-time hog hunt as a memento.
