Illobrand von Ludwiger

Illobrand von Ludwiger, born in Settin, Germany in 1937, was appointed Director for the Mutual UFO Network - Central European Section (MUFON-CES) (the German-speaking nations of Europe) on June 3, 1974. MUFON-CES is an elite and select group of engineers, scientists, academicians and professionals, who have been conducting their own MUFON UFO symposia in Europe since 1975, and have published their proceedings in Deutsch.

Illobrand received his degree as an astrophysicist from the University of Erlangen in 1964 and completed his doctorate thesis from the University of Gottingen on the subject "A new covariant sealer - tensor theory of gravitation with the tensor of curvature by Lyra". He is employed as a system analyst by Messerschmitt-Bolkow-Blohm Corp. in Munich-Ottobrunn. While on a business trip to the U.S.A., he visited the former MUFON headquarters in Seguin, TX.

Herr von Ludwiger published a paper in the MUFON 1978 UFO Symposium Proceedings titled "Unidentified Flying Objects and Future Spaceflight Propulsions". A limited edition of his study of the theoretical work of the famous German physicist, Dr. Burkhard Heim, was published by MUFON titled "Unified Quantum Theory of Matter and Gravitation". He is also a member of th German society Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft zur Forderung der Parapsychologie (GWFP) in Freiburg (Scientific Society for Advancement of Parapsychology).

When someone in the field of Ufology receives a prestigious award for their organizational and publication accomplishments, it is a rare honor indeed. The Dr. Hedri Foundation for Exopsychology and Epipsychology Zurich bestowed the Award for Exopsychology 1990 with 20,000 Swiss francs (about 13,000 U.S. dollars) to Dipl. Phys. Illobrand von Ludwiger in recognition for his long-standing scientific exploration of the UFO phenomenon and for his publication of the deserving and elaborate ten volumes (symposium proceedings) of MUFON-CES. This award was presented on February 16, 1990 in connection with the GV of the Swiss Association of Parapsychology Bern/Biel at the University of Bern. (Obviously, everyone in MUFON worldwide congratulated Illobrand for this earned recognition.)
