                            CALCULATION OF FILING FEE

Transaction Valuation*                                    Amount of Filing Fee**
    $92,589,017                                                 $8,518.19

*     Estimated for purposes of calculating the filing fee only. This
      calculation assumes the purchase of 17,378,290 shares of common stock of
      Paravant Inc. (based on the number of shares outstanding as of October 23,
      2002, which was 17,354,040, plus the number of shares of common stock to
      be issued under the Paravant Employee Stock

      Purchase Plan, which is 24,250) at the tender offer price of $4.75 per
      share of common stock. The transaction value also includes the offer price
      of $4.75 less $2.20 which is the weighted-average exercise price of
      outstanding options as of October 23, 2002, multiplied by 3,808,682 the
      estimated number of options outstanding on such date. The transaction
      value further includes the offer price of $4.75 less $2.75 which is the
      exercise price of warrants as of October 23, 2002, multiplied by 165,000,
      the number of warrants outstanding on such date.

      This Amendment No. 1 amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on
Schedule TO filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission")
on October 28, 2002 (the "Schedule TO") by DRS Technologies, Inc., a Delaware
corporation ("Parent"), and Prince Merger Corporation, a Florida corporation and
a wholly owned subsidiary of DRS ("Purchaser"). The Schedule TO relates to the
Offer by the Purchaser to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common
stock, par value $0.015, of Paravant Inc., a Florida corporation, at a purchase
price of $4.75 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest thereon,
upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase,
dated October 28, 2002 (the "Offer to Purchase"), and in the related Letter of
Transmittal, copies of which are filed with the Schedule TO as Exhibits
(a)(1)(A) and (a)(1)(B), respectively. This Schedule TO is being filed on behalf
of Purchaser and Parent. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein
shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Offer to Purchase or in
the Schedule TO.

      Item 11 of the Schedule TO is hereby amended and supplemented to include
the following information:

      Section 14.   Certain Legal Matters

            The third full paragraph on page 39 of the Offer to Purchase under
the label Antitrust is amended and restated as follows:

            "A Notification and Report Form with respect to the offer was filed
on November 4, 2002, and the waiting period with respect to the Offer under the
HSR Act will expire at 11:59 P.M., New York City time, on the fifteenth day
after such Notification and Report Form is filed, which would be November 19,
2002. Before such time, however, either the FTC or the Antitrust Division may
extend the waiting period by requesting additional information or materials from
Purchaser. If such request is made, the waiting period will expire at 11:59
P.M., New York City time on the tenth calendar day after Purchaser has
substantially complied with such request. Thereafter the waiting period may be
extended only by court order or with Purchaser's consent."


      After due inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify
that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
