## How to Convert Radians to Mils (NATO)

Convert radians to mils (NATO) with this simple formula:

Converting a radian angle measurement to a mil measurement involves multiplying the angle by the conversion ratio to find the result. One radian is equal to 1,018.591636 mils (NATO), so to convert simply multiply by 1,018.591636.

**For example:**

Radians and mils (NATO) are both units used to measure angle.

Radians are an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as *rad*, for example 1 rad.
Mils (NATO) are an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as *mil*, for example 1 mil.

A radian is the measurement of the angle from the start to the end of an arc equal to the radius of the circle. 1 radian is equal to 180/π, or about 57.29578°. There are about 6.28318 radians in a circle. The radian is the standard SI unit of measurement for an angle.

A mil, short for milliradian, is equal to 1/6,400 of a circle. The mil used by the US military and NATO forces is slightly different than the true value of a milliradian, which is equal to 1/6,283 of a circle.

During World War I the US adopted what is now the NATO mil to replace degrees and minutes for use in artillery sights. They opted to round mils to 6,400 per circle for simplicity at the time. Today, the mil is commonly used to measure adjustment of sights and scopes of firearms.
