Re: JAL, the airline is just not an issue.  The programming language I
think is as there are books on Amazon less than 6 years old on PAL
(https://www.amazon.com/PIC-Microcontroller-Programming-captivating-lessons/dp/190792017X) 
I don't think it's legacy just perhaps mature and things like Raspberry
Pi's overtaking the field.

Re: Winch, might be a common name and undefendable as a trademark, etc. 
Otherwise, though, I couldn't find much relevant in OSS spaces except a
company called winch gate. 

http://tmsearch.uspto.gov/ might help
