Interleaving phases of LBNE and Project X will enable pursuit of ever increasing sensitivity to neutrino
mixing parameters. Stage 1 of Project X can also enable pursuit of several other physics opportunities
in parallel. We survey here the research program for the first stage of Project X, which is technically
advanced enough now to consider it at the same time as Phase 1 of the reconfigured LBNE. Most of
the physics case for Project X has been discussed elsewhere, for example in Ref. , without factoring
the program into the three stages of Project X. Here we aim to show how well known and compelling
physics questions can be addressed with Stage 1 of Project X.
