SIGHTPOWER INC technology is a breakthrough in a digital transformation for mining, infrastructure and ESG strategies

The contemporary challenges related to the environmental impact of human activities and the new opportunities appeared due to AI-based instruments, automation, robotics, augmented and mixed reality technologies and cloud-based solutions generated severe turmoil in strategic planning, business priorities, decision making process and put in doubt many old values. 

The only undoubted fact that nobody can dispute is growing request for various data collection, integration, and analysis. Where we are, where are we going, what is happening to us and to our surroundings along the way? These questions will direct the further development of human’s activities. Our world becomes more and more digitally managed and digital transformation in all dimensions of our lives can be considered nowadays rather as an inevitable path to our future than a free choice we may agree to or opt.     

It becomes obvious that only the consistent and the holistic approach to data management opens opportunities for optimal solutions where the interests of businesses, environmental requirements and social governance problems can be mutually satisfied.

The challenge of intelligent data management is critical since data processing technologies for infrastructure management, mining, construction projects and environmental management have fallen behind in the Big Data revolution.

Monitoring systems and robotic-like hardware may generate billions of data points every hour; however, software has faced roadblocks in integration and processing and has not kept up pace to make meaning of this growing dataset. Besides that, the existing big spatial data management systems often fail to integrate with legacy technology, leaving major gaps and inefficiency along the end-to-end operations workflow. There are no software systems on the market that support unified combination of industrial and environmental data and suggest intelligent analytical solutions with cross-optimization for industrial and environmental social governance (ESG) problems.

At Sight Power, we have spent 10+ years learning from the operating challenges faced by our customers, and we have built digital solutions that help to seamlessly integrate and analyze various data types across customer’s workflows to drive efficiency and to secure millions of dollars in savings. We help our clients to make smooth transition from old-style operation to fully digital environment making their business effective, consistent, and compliant with environmental challenges.  

The core resolution for holistic digital transformation issue is the realization that only the creation of unified informational space which combines infrastructural, environmental, and industrial data is the key for combating controversial challenges across these areas of activity.

The SightPower eXtended Geospatial Integration Platform (XGIP) was specially designed for the creation of unified data environment by combining various types of spatial data. It provides instant and versatile access to information for decision makers and stakeholders at both strategic and tactical levels.



The creation of a Digital City is a process that takes place in many stages, the sequence of which may be different for different cities and is determined to a large extent by both the practical needs of a particular city and the strategic plan for the development of a specific urban economy, the state of infrastructure facilities and the readiness of the city leadership to make the transition on modern management methods.

However, despite the significant differences in priorities and needs for different cities, it is possible to formulate several general benefits that a city receives by gradually switching to digital principles of city management, for example:

·        Improving the quality, efficiency, and speed of response of city services to any emergency situations

·        Full control over the use of management tools and resources, transparency in the decision-making process

·        Improving security and control systems at sensitive facilities and during public events

·        Reducing costs for solving specific urban problems through better planning

·        Improving communication between city residents and the government.

·        General optimization of urban infrastructure management

·        Using modeling tools to assess the consequences of implementing certain long-term strategic projects for city development.

·        Possibility of attracting external investment by creating the image of a modern, advanced city


The usage of SightPower digital platform combined with SightPower digital twinning technology creates unlimited opportunities to build customized digital city solutions opened for further extensions and amendments.  


The notion of XGIP-based DIGITAL MINETM technology is based on the idea of collecting and processing detailed information about all past, current, and planned operations and workflows at a mining company with further creation of mine’s Digital Twin

The technology suggests effective integration with majority of general mining packages, CAD systems, GIS systems, integrated support of over 40+ spatial formats with cross-format integration and implements compliance with workflows without any limitation on spatial data volumes.

Therefore, it provides accelerated ROI on all software packages and systems due to the elimination of ‘silo’ effect.

Ability to effectively process and integrate collected information which is being received from various modelling and analytical facilities, monitoring, and distributed sensor systems helps to optimize both operational and strategic decisions.

Managers and engineers get access to real-time maps of live status of mining operations, equipment location and conditions as well as available resources. Informational clarity enables remote management of all operations at a mining company/holding.


Environmental Social Governance (ESG) goals pose significant challenges for businesses, such as reducing carbon footprint, improving social inclusion and diversity, and ensuring ethical and transparent governance. Digital transformation can help businesses overcome these challenges and achieve their ESG goals in a various way, but the environmental impact remains the first in the line.

Digital solutions can help businesses reduce their environmental footprint by optimizing usage of natural resources, in particular energy consumption, pollution and emission optimization, recycling etc.

By integrating an ESG lens into every element of their digital transformation journey, businesses can not only create positive impact for their stakeholders, but also capture business value in terms of cost savings, revenue growth, innovation potential and brand loyalty.

Using XGIP for digital transformation of ESG strategies adds data control transparency, and so may significantly improve effectiveness of management and simplifies implementation of decisions.

SightPower XGIP is an open architecture platform. The power of XGIP platform is in its ability to be conveniently extended by required analytical tools (in particular, AI-based), and therefore to be applicable to any ESG projects whatever challenges they are facing or may face in the future.

These days we develop simulation modules for tailing dams’ failure analysis (ESG and mining), for underground flooding prediction and prevention (for digital city / infrastructure, ESG and mining), for optimization of heavy truck itineraries (ESG and mining) etc.
