Plane - Autonomous landing on moving deck (Aircraft Carrier style)

I’m using arduplane to control a mapping UAV. I know I can add a VTOL kit to the current design but think it would be very cool to turn my vehicle into an aircraft carrier. Launch is not going to be a problem (accelerate to takeoff speed and release a tie-down attached to the aircraft). Recovery is going to be the interesting part.
I’m not really looking for suggestions on how to capture the UAV after touching down on the moving deck although if you have any good suggestions I may be willing to be your Guinea pig.
I am looking for technical advice on how to make a plane lock onto and meet a moving point in 3D space. I’m thinking some sort of beacon?
All suggestions, including “forget it.” :stuck_out_tongue: are appreciated.
