A captain is an officer who commands or leads a platoon, a department, a crew, a ship, a spacecraft, etc.

A co-captain is an officer who does the above alongside another commanding officer. He/she can be of the same rank as the captain, but is usually the person who is second in command.

Another example would be a pilot and a co-pilot.

In business you have Manager and Assistant Manager, or as on a ship you have the Captain and First Mate.
