The following CBS article and video have more info about these things, including the difficulty they had in filming them. You just have to patiently wait until the commercial at the start of the video completes.

 Surviving the launch from an F16 at 200+ knots is itself quite an accomplishment. They must have some pretty good hot glue out there in Area 51, right, Gord? Alien technology?  :o 8)

The ground launcher is rather interesting. The little plane itself reminds me of something that might emerge from the Flypaper College of Aero-nut-ical Knowledge ;D
