  A compact hard X-ray source via laser Compton scattering is required for biological, medical and industrial science because it has many benefits about generated X-rays such as short pulse, quasi-monochromatic, energy tunability and good directivity. Our X-ray source is conventionally the single collision system between an electron pulse and a laser pulse. To increase X-ray yields, we have developed a multi-collision system with a multi-bunch electron beam and a laser optical cavity. The multi-bunch electron beam has already been generated from a Cs-Te photocathode rf gun system using a multi-pulse UV laser. The laser optical cavity have developed like a regenerative amplification including the collision point between the electron pulse and the laser pulse which is based on the Ti:Sa laser with a mode-locked frequency of 79.33 MHz. In this preliminary experiment, the modulated seed laser pulses were generated and leaded to the cavity, so that laser build-up amplification was performed in the cavity length of 3.78 m with two seed pulses. In this conference, we will describe the results of preliminary experiments for the multi-collision system and future plans.
