Not really sure what that could be, but the logo is pretty darn cool. OH, btw, your source link does not work, I get a '404' not listed. But apparently it is a secret space satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) hence the NROL (Lift)
More details of the NROL here!
However, WHAT is interesting is the U.S. Air Force's Mysterious X-37B Space Plane.
The U.S. Air Force's mysterious X-37B space plane is nearing a major milestone — one year of travel in Earth orbit, performing duties in support of long-term space objectives.
The unmanned X-37B spacecraft — flying a mission known as Orbital Test Vehicle 3 (OTV-3) — launched into space atop an Atlas 5 rocket from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Dec. 11, 2012. What payloads the space plane is toting and the overall mission goals on its confidential cruise are classified.

Between this project, The NSA and the dozens of 'Black Projects' and Secret Sites and their missions, it doesn't surprise me that 'someone' feels that have complete coverage or near complete coverage of what is happening from a covert and/or overt operational situation.
Afterall, they do call it 'Dreamland'. Peace

That seemed so ridiculous that I figured it was photoshopped.
Nope. Here's the official press release on the launch, which includes that logo: NROL-39 Scheduled to Launch with GEMSat Auxiliary Payload
