    Post Unknow grammatical structure...

    I was watching a science fiction film and I remember a sentence that I understood but I donīt know what kind of grammatical structure it was.

    "Attention, attention, our ship is to make a modular transformation in 1 minute..."

    My problem is with "our ship is to make..." What the letter "to" is used between "is" and "make"?


    Would you explain me what kind of grammatical structure is it?

    Thank you in advance.
    Have a good day.
