PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 18 -- DRS Technologies Inc. announced today that its DRS Power & Control Technologies unit has acquired all of the outstanding stock of Power Technology Inc., a privately held company in Fitchburg, Mass. The purchase price was $35 million cash, with additional consideration payable upon securing certain future contract awards.
