We present a geometric theory of the Fourier-Bros-Iagolnitzer transform on a compact ${\mathcal{C}^\infty}$ manifold $M$. The FBI transform is a generalization of the classical notion of the wave-packet transform. We discuss the mapping properties of the FBI transform and its relationship to the calculus of pseudodifferential operators on $M$. We also describe the microlocal properties of its range in terms of the ``scattering calculus'' of pseudodifferential operators on the noncompact manifold $T^* M$.
