German term or phrase: BPS
Context:
Bereitstellung der BPS. Die zur Durchführung der Arbeiten erforderlichen BPS werden zur Verfügung gestellt. Für die Kalibrierung und Inspektion von BPS ist die Flugbereitschaft verantwortlich.

I firth thought this may be Bodenpersonal, but given the last sentence, this is evidently not the case. Bodengerät (ground equipment) would seem most logical, but wouldn't be abbreviated to BPS.
