Processing of radar imagery is important for a wide range of meteorological and other domain use cases.

However, I question the rationale behind this approach.

This type of analytical process is not trivial. Rather than re-invent the wheel here it may be better to extend libraries that specialise in spatial and image analysis. 

The project is doing this already with GDAL.

A good example analytical framework that may be a sound base would be Grass. They already have algorithms for processing radar imagery e.g. [1]. Grass also has python bindings.

For workflow processing there are also other options, e.g. build on QGIS,  pyWPS or a number of other WPS libraries.
