We propose to consider an alternative to the linac-only injector scheme for the Project X accelerator system. The alternative injector concept is based on the 1 GeV Pulsed Linac followed by an 8 GeV Superconducting Rapid Cycling Synchrotron (SRCS) and an 8 GeV Superconducting Dual Storage Ring (SDSR). The Pulsed Linac and the SRCS require new civil construction while the SDSR replaces the Recycler in the Main Injector tunnel. The proposed accelerator complex is not strongly technologically challenged and a very tentative cost analysis suggests a significantly lower cost than with the linac-only option while reasonably satisfying the beam intensity expectations for the Neutrino, Kaon and Muon physics as outlined for Project X. The saved funds would help construction of new neutrino experiments as well as solidify the R&D effort toward future high-energy physics accelerators.
