The simple drawback would be size and weight limitations.
yep, may need some flight testing.

perhaps a couple aircraft flying in loose formation along a GPS mapped grid could cover more ground to conduct the surveys.

1. flight testing (check)
2. loose formation flying along GPS course, lower altitudes (check) (no smoke!)
3. is there enough benefit for the data (unknown)

Default Gamma, RF, IR, etc?

Steve, what type of radiation were you interested in? The equipment, size, weight, sensitivity, etc. will vary considerably.
