In avigation, navigation and other fields, electrical image stabilization technique (EIS) is applied widely. Recent research for electrical image stabilization is focused on motion vector estimation, which influences accuracy of image stabilization and its applicable scope directly, and pay less attention to the relation between image stabilization algorithm and structure character of image sensor. In fact, while image sensors are interline transfer CCD, 2D rigid motion model is not accurate enough for the image stabilization algorithm. There exist the displacement between the rows in a frame, for the different rows are exposed at different time. In order to compensate the interline displacement caused by the movement of the sensor both in horizontal and vertical direction, an image revision method based on correlation was put forward for the structure character of interline transfer CCD. During exposure of each frame, the motion of camera is along uniform direction and approximately even (otherwise it is beyond application scope of EIS), so it is feasible to revise image according to the displacement at the top and the bottom of image. Image sequence was acquired by telescope with function of optical image stabilization, and then was processed by electrical image stabilization algorithm. Experiment results showed that the image fidelity has been improved remarkably after image revision processing.
