the companies do not have their own chase planes. most likely the chase would come from edwards or DLR and only arrive in the area just before the takeoff. based on my flight test experience there will be a chase or two. a dark night first flight from palmdale would probably be the first time that had happened for an aircraft of this size. if they do it this way they REALLY want to keep it secret because safety would dictate you do this during the day. eyes and ears are open here in the valley - there was no unusual radio traffic that i could detect last night.
