A co-worker previously worked for a store-front fabricator (Kawneer?)

Anyway, he had a partial copy of ATS-109 in his files, the report
appears to have been done by Libby-Owen-Ford back in 1987 which now
appears to be the Pilkington Group. Their website doesn't list that
specific ATS report.

Another source would be ASTM E 1300 - Standard Practice for Determining
the Minimum Thickness and Type of Glass Required to Resist a Specified

Also, the building codes appear to have span/deflection tables for
various thickness of glass.

Good luck!
