Can ArcGIS Pro convert Ground coordinates to UTM?

I have an AutoCAD drawing in ground coordinates and need to get this into a usable projection to use in ArcGIS Pro. Is ArcGIS Pro able to do this? I have the math that is typically used to do such a conversion (below), but I am not quite clear how to implement this in ArcGIS Pro:



To Transform Ground to UTM Coordinates

Example: Point100 (Ground) 13262.582 m N, 4380.119 m E

1. Shift back to the original scaled coordinate value:

13262.582 m + 6,000,000 m = 6013262.582 m N
4380.119 m + 410,000m = 414380.119 m E

2. Scale Point 100 from the Ground down to the Grid using the CSF:

6013262.582 m * 0.9996899303 = 6011398.051 m
414380.119 m * 0.9996899303 = 414251.632 m



Thank you
