    The Interacting Multiple Model (IMM) is a sub-optimal hybrid approach that has come to be recognized as one of the most cost-effective techniques for target tracking. The main feature of this algorithm is its ability to switch from one model to another which makes it a potent tool to track maneuvering targets. The present report gives a treatise on the baseline IMM algorithm for target tracking applications. A 2-model IMM approach is used as an example to describe the principles, assumptions and the procedures involved. Its applicability to track maneuvering targets is demonstrated with simulated data. Comparison of results with those obtained from standard Kalman filter clearly brings out the superiority of IMM approach for tracking maneuvering targets.
