“From the very beginning, Professor Schilling had recognised and promoted the importance of interdisciplinary technological cross-fertilization between computer science, automation, software development and robotics. His satellites impressively reflect this interaction of different components,” said DGLR President Professor Rolf Henke.

Schilling is very pleased about the medal, which is considered the most important German award in the space sector: “This recognition is a great incentive for our team to continue intensive activities on sophisticated space technology. The medal recognizes contributions, that were only possible through the cooperation in interdisciplinary teams. My special thanks therefore go to the competent international teams that I had the privilege of coordinating.”
