Who sponsored the development of ARPAnet? Who actually built the hardware it was based on? What has become of them?

ARPAnet, the first computer network, was created by the Defense Department and grown up by linking with hundreds of universities, military contractors, and research laboratories. The popular hardware in primitive networking era was PDP-10 produced by DEC.
