This is called policy nat.
As per Cisco: When you configure "policy NAT," you identify the real addresses and destination/source addresses using an extended access list.

that is a  policy static NAT: you can read the following link for full explanation:

basically, you're telling ASA to use tha IP address whenever an IP in the LAN wants to get an IP connection to host

hope this helps

Thanks guys, especially Max.  You've confirmed what I thought.

This is basically a destination NAT. When on the inside talks to on the outside, destination NAT it so that after the NAT is done it will look like this: sending traffic to destination

Does that sound correct?

Yes trojan81, where i may assume comes from another interface, such as a dmz or something routed from above.
