Electronic Image Stabilization(EIS) is widely used as a technique for correcting a shake of an image. The case requiring the EIS function has been increased in high magnification thermal image observation on portable military equipment. Projection Algorithm(PA) for EIS is easy to implement but its performance is sensitive to the projection area. Especially, projection profiles of thermal image have very modest change and are difficult to extract image shifts between frames. In this paper, we proposed algorithm to extract a feature image for the thermal image and compared Block Matching Algorithm(BMA) with PA using our proposed feature image. When using our proposed feature image, BMA was simply implemented using FPGA`s internal small memory. And we were able to obtain 30 % PSNR improved results compared to PA.
