This thesis aims to make a profound research on the“military”utility which visual design has in the military field. As an important part of psywar in the age of Information Warfare, visual design goes through the whole process of military life.Taking the evolution of war form as the research background and starting from the aspect of weapon and equipment, this thesis proposes that the visual design, like other weapons, should have both the attacking and defensive functions and elaborates the“inside”function of the visual design as well as the“outside”when it’s applied differently. The“inside”function refers that the visual design could stimulate the morale and spirits of the armymen, increase the identification of the public with war and strengthen the social cohesion in the course of war. Such function is also exhibited in how to win the support of the third side and create beneficial international opinion during the warfare. While the“outside”function refers to the aggressive capabilities of“visual weapons”, which stresses the“soft-damaged”capacity, that is to execute the psychological attack of visual weapon on enemy and collapse their battle effectiveness.In the modern warfare visual design has become an indispensable constitutional system of psywar. It’s also necessary to instruct and train officials and soldiers by the visual design so as to make them understand, on the basis of their own practice in the army, the operational theory of the visual design in the modern warfare and constitute a complete set of theoretic system.
