The Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is a wireless, systematic, autonomous network that can be used in various situations without the need for central control. A disaster is a sudden event that disrupts normal activities. MANET can play an important role in a disaster situation. Situations where normal communication is already interrupted. The MANET route discovery is one of the most important aspects of data transfer in a disaster. Proactive and reactive routing protocols are used as standard in various uses of MANET due to their ease of construction and operation. Their combination makes it a way to get better route discovery and efficiency because long-term route contracts do not provide better performance on heavy traffic and load, especially in a disaster. Because the hybrid method is very useful for rapid convergence of network with low memory and power management. This study introduces a hybrid approach that combines proactive and reactive protocols for route discovery and link breakage. The simulation model was used for the proposed hybrid method. The results after the simulation show that hybrid approach offers better performance during packet delivery ratio, network load, end-to-end delay and throughput as compared to the AODV routing protocols.
