Vice Admiral Albert M. Calland, III (born 1952), United States Navy (Ret.) was the Deputy Director for Strategic Operational Planning at the National Counterterrorism Center. He also previously served as Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency from July 2005 to July 2006. Calland graduated from the United States Naval Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1974 and later went on to receive a Master of Science degree in national resource strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces in 1996. He retired from the Navy on July 1, 2007, after 33 years of service.

Prior to his appointment as Deputy Director, Calland was the commanding officer of Special Operations Command Central (SOCCENT), part of United States Central Command, and as such, commanded efforts in Afghanistan in 2001 .[1] Between August 2002 and March 2004, Calland served as the commanding officer of the Naval Special Warfare Command.

Calland's career at the Central Intelligence Agency began with his appointment to the position of Associate Director of Central Intelligence for Military Support in March 2004, a position he filled until his appointment as Deputy Director. Calland resigned from that position upon the confirmation of CIA Director General Michael Hayden, as a 1953 amendment to the National Security Act of 1947 prevents the Director and Deputy Director from serving in the military simultaneously.

After leaving the CIA, Calland served for a year as Deputy Director for Strategic Operational Planning at the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). He retired from the Navy and government service in 2007, becoming Executive Vice President for Security and Intelligence Integration with CACI International Inc.[2]
