The National Telecommunications and Information Administration reports that:

"secondary use is permitted by other Government agencies in support of experi- mentation and research programs"

it classifies that range as "G8--Low power Government radio control operations"

it describes the range as :

"The band 420-450 MHz is used by the military and other Federal agencies for a number of important radar applications, multi-function position-location communications systems, and test range telecommand and flight termination systems making the band
essential to national security.

The band 420-450 MHz is used extensively by the military agencies for land-based,
shipborne, and airborne radar systems to perform important national security functions.
The physics of radio propagation make the band excellent for long-range radar search and
surveillance operations, and the associated target tracking. The band is used for longrange search and surveillance radars to detect and track ballistic missiles and aircraft, and
to catalog objects in space.

The military agencies use the band 420-450 MHz for the multi-function Position
Location Reporting System (PLRS) and the modernized Enhanced Position Location
Reporting System (EPLRS). EPLRS is a data communications network that enables the
rapid determination of the locations of all units in the network. EPLRS also has
communications and navigational capabilities in addition to the position location feature.
The EPLRS and its airborne version, the AEPLRS, are critical to the operations and
safety of our military forces.

The band 420-450 MHz is used for command control and flight termination functions at
numerous missile and rocket launch and test ranges."

perhaps playing around with a mobile radar station? (I recall them being seen hauling around a captured Russian radar unit on a truck just outside the range not too long ago?)

or perhaps drone (swarm) interaction?
