Abstract : The United States remains a non-signatory of the 1982 United Nations Law of the Sea Convention (USCLOS), yet strongly supports the navigational causes contained therein. The Freedom of Navigation program is designed to peacefully assert U.S. rights on and over the high seas, as well as guarantee rights of transit and innocent passage. Although the FON program has been successful to date, it requires a few fundamental changes before it can continue to be a visable tool for assuring our maritime rights into the 21st century.
