Anousheh Ansari_ Space_ProdeaAnousheh Ansari is Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Prodea Systems. As she launched her company on September 18, 2006, she also blasted off for an eight-day expedition aboard the International Space Station and captured headlines around the world as the first female private space explorer. She also earned a place in history as the first astronaut of Iranian descent, the first Muslim woman, and the fourth private explorer to visit space.

Prodea Systems believes that it’s time for the world of technology to work together so they created the Residential Operating System to connect people, data and devices in one clean, easy to use interface. This new system allows all of the most commonly used devices to work together and speak the same digital language.
