I must've watched the start of the vid 10 times. The way it sort of "leaps" out of the launcher, seems to hover in mid-air for a moment, and then rocket away is surreal.

@josho42
a quick snip from wikipedia:

As a fire-and-forget missile, after launch the missile has to be able to track and destroy its target without the gunner. This is done by coupling an onboard imaging IR system (different from CLU imaging system) with an onboard tracking system.

The gunner uses the CLU's IR system to find and identify the target then switches to the missile`s independent IR system to set a track box around the target and establish a lock. The gunner places brackets around the image for locking.

The seeker stays focused on the target`s image continuing to recognize as the target moves or the missile`s flight path alters or as attack angles change.

...just saying.
