Air Force badge regulation mirror finish Basic Air Battle Manager.
During lightning-fast air combat, every decision makes an impact. The officers making all of those decisions are the Air Battle Managers (ABM). They use strategy, experience and an intimate knowledge of all aircraft, weapons and surveillance to ensure success. By controlling the battle space and establishing "big picture" situational awareness, ABMs plan and execute the entire theater air operation. Their expertise is also often called upon in an advisory role by other allied military forces.
