    What does this unit "NM" mean?

    This is part of a paper or something, please tell me what does NM mean here and what does MSC mean here,thanks.
    (MSC.192/5.4.1) With own vessel at zero speed (or at a fixed land-based site), an antenna height of 15 m above the sea level and in calm (minimal clutter) conditions, the navigational buoy (with corner reflector) in Table 2 shall be detected at a minimum horizontal range of 40 m from the antenna position and up to a range of 1 NM, without changing the setting of control functions other than the range scale selector.

    "This is part of a paper or something"

    The answer is Nautical Mile.

    WHEW! Technical manuals aren't any fun to read even if you know what they mean. Perhaps the manufacturing company produces a manual in your native tongue. If you don't know what it is I'd recommend something less grueling for learning on

    Thanks and I am quite of your opinion.
    But I just have to do the translation of it.

    (MSC.192/5.4.1), I guess I failed to give you guys more information about it.
    192 is probably paged 192 and 5.4.1 is probably chaper 5.4.1. So , MSC should be name of a book or something. I just don't have a clue of it.
