    Directing ARPA’s computer research program, Robert Taylor initiates the ARPAnet project, the foundation for today’s Internet.
  • Charles Herzfeld Approves Funds for Computer Networking Experiment

    Charles Herzfeld Approves Funds for Computer Networking Experiment
    As ARPA director, Charles Herzfeld approves funding to develop a networking experiment that would tie together multiple universities funded by the agency. The result would be the ARPAnet, the first packet network and a predecessor to today’s Internet.
  • Danny Cohen Develops First Real-time Visual Flight Simulator

    Danny Cohen Develops First Real-time Visual Flight Simulator
    Danny Cohen develops the first real-time visual flight simulator on a general purpose computer and the first real-time radar simulator. His flight simulator work leads to the development of the Cohen-Sutherland computer graphics line clipping algorithms, created with Ivan Sutherland. visit site:https://www.internethalloffame.org/internet-history/timeline
  • ARPAnet Design Begins

    ARPAnet Design Begins
    Lawrence Roberts leads ARPAnet design discussions and publishes first ARPAnet design paper: "Multiple Computer Networks and Intercomputer Communication." Wesley Clark suggests the network is managed by interconnected ‘Interface Message Processors’ in front of the major computers. Called IMPs, they evolve into today’s routers.
