Regarding the anti-missile defense, there was supposed to be a test this March at the TTR. Here is the statement:
The Air Force will be conducting various MANPADS launches at Tonopah Test Range, NV during March 2006. AAC/XRS considers this an excellent opportunity for system developers/integrators to assess their existing detection and tracking hardware and software against MANPADS. The Government is expecting to have TSPI data available for all MANPADS firings. Offerors must identify any additional data requirements. Offerors are expected to bring their own equipment to the government MANPADS test site.
Terms used:
AAC = Air Armament Center
TSPI = Time Space Position Information

I don't think they would need to fly around much to test such gear. Manpads have around a 3 mile range and 15k ft. height. So the testing would probably be very localized.
