Here is a fairly recent item that came to our attention relevant to some of the new developments taking place at the former Nevada Test Site, now known as the Nevada National Security Site (N2S2):

New "secret" Nevada UAV test site, near Area 51:

(there was a previous report, however, that Northrop Grumman may have been involved in this area for some time)

Here is a comment from Peter Merlin:

We know that the P-175 Polecat was tested at Area 6 (Yucca Lake) because there are images and video of the airplane using the lakebed airstrip. This took place before the new airfield was constructed.

The P-170/RQ-170 Sentinel has been associated with the 30th Reconnaissance Squadron at Area 52 (Tonopah Test Range) in official statements. It may have been initially flown from the Yucca strip.

There is circumstantial evidence connecting the Desert Prowler UAV to Area 51, and possibly even to the Red Hats squadron though this seems counterintuitive.

All three are products of the Lockheed Martin Skunk Works.

Here is a recent, relevant article concerning this facility:
