Mobile Ad hoc networks (MANETs) are composed of a
collection of independent nodes usually connected by low
bandwidth Radio Frequency (RF) links which are challenging
for transmitting video and high bandwidth applications for
rescue workers in emergency situations. Earlier we proposed
a routing protocol, called AODVH to use for high bandwidth
communication for search and rescue operations in a disaster
area which consists of hybrid nodes using Free Space Optical
(FSO) and RF links, with FSO being the primary link and
RF as backup in the case of failure of "FSO only" paths.
The objective of this paper is to evaluate the performance
of AODVH using ns-2 simulations with varying network size
