Bugeye Technologies was formed in 2003 as part of the “Boeing Chairman’s Innovation Initiative - Project # 619” as a spin-out company to utilize key technologies developed for the Joint Strike Fighter program. Of more than 1,200 applicants, Bugeye was one of only 5 that were spun-out. Today Bugeye Technologies occupies a 13,500 square foot manufacturing facility in North America, just outside of St. Louis in Union Missouri. Bugeye's flight simulation products are shipped worldwide from this facility.
Bugeye is dedicated to making your simulation solutions faster, better and more reliable. Bugeye’s key partners are located in close proximity to enhance the production of rapid prototypes and special projects for customers. To extend the life cycle of your product, Bugeye has designed flight controls with field maintenance in mind. Bugeye Technologies knows the importance details and cost structure can make in the success of a simulation program.
The Bugeye Quality Management System [QMS] conforms to the requirements of ISO 9001 and complies with relevant customer and legal/regulatory requirements.
The scope of the QMS includes the design, build and assembly of visual simulators for the aerospace industry.
