From a sparse set of large-scale Linear Time Invariant (LTI) dynamical models, a methodology to generate a low-order parameter-dependent and uncertain model, with guaranteed bounds on the approximation error is firstly obtained using advanced approximation and interpolation techniques. Secondly, the stability of the aforementioned model, represented as a Linear Fractional Representation (LFR) and subject to actuator saturation and dynamical uncertainties, is addressed through the use of an irrational multiplier-based Integral Quadratic Constraint (IQC) approach. The effectiveness of the approach is assessed on a complex set of aeroservoelastic aircraft models used in an industrial framework for control design and validation purposes.
