I am currently an NCO in the Army with a goal of becoming an ATP certified pilot. I have been considering becoming an Army Warrant Officer for a while, but I REALLY want to fly fixed-wing. I am currently working on my private pilot's license and will have completed and passed my PPL checkride by August. Is this transition possible, and if so how should I go about it?

Here are my 2 cents. Don’t go into the Navy thinking ATP. Go into it because you want to be a Naval Officer and Naval Aviator. It’s not a guaranteed to get fixed wing, and who knows how many hours you will end up with. If you want hours go Army Warrant, but you don’t want rotary wing. Second option is USAF heavies, but you can run the risk of getting drones.
