The Image Recognition Missile memorizes the targeted ship in a pilot's sights and once locking, it tracks the targeted ship.[2]

Kilrathi ships that sport the missile are the Gratha.[3]

AIM-42 "Spiculum" IR is an all-aspect guided missile used on Terran Confederation starfighters such as the Rapiers.[1][3]

It requires a several-second lock period, during which it "memorizes" the electromagnetic silhouette, infrared signature, etc. of the target. If it overshoots, it will circle around and continue to attempt impact, however it can run out of fuel and self-destruct, or be thrown off by ECM decoys.
