Images are from the 2012 New Atlas article ORBITEC flight tests new vortex liquid fuel rocket engine. One looks a bit like a US military or DoD logo, one perhaps is ATK, but I'm not sure. Is this effort a joint research project between all of these organizations?

Related question: Are there any complications of the position of the oxidizer injector on Orbitec's vortex rocket engine?

I found a higher res picture which let me ID the logos.

The top "patch" is the Air Force Research Lab insignia.

Then Orbitec, then Garvey Spacecraft Corporation, then, as you said, ATK (ATK logo apparently predates the merger with Orbital).

    $\begingroup$ Sorry to accept before you're even finished posting, but this one looks like a slam-dunk to me. I didn't realize that the Orbital ATK was only about two years ago. $\endgroup$ – uhoh May 21 '17 at 16:34
