Default Super Bowl: Can anyone please help ID these sniper systems?

Saw this link posted up online of some the sniper systems the police have set up for the Super Bowl right now. Can anyone help ID the equipment they're using? I'm guessing that's a Schmidt Bender PMII that they're using there. what kind of distances do you think they're shooting at and what angles?

Looks like it's the XLR Industries Evolution Chassis

These were from last year. I remember these on various newswires.

Also, the "XLVI" in the first pic is a dead giveaway.

More like looking at your wife/girlfriends tits through a scope.

As already mentioned, those are from last year.
That's an xlr chassis with a 700 action and a usoptics scope.
Range looks to to 125yds and perhaps 30 degrees max angle as they would have 3-4 shooters setup all around the stadium to cover the whole thing.

Yep - Randall has it all correct -
XLR Chassis -
Rem 700 based Rifle (short action)
USO SN3 (3-17) with EREK Elevation Knob
ATLAS Bipod
Can't tell which can they are using - but looks like direct attach - Could be many brands.
The TriPod System is from a company in Texas as I recall - Check out the Hog Saddle as an alternative. Designed by a USMC SS guy (nice dude too) and made here in CA.
