Abstract: Mobile Ad Hoc network is comprised of large number of multi-hop movable sensor nodes. Nodes in the MANET usually communicates with the other nodes that co exists with them without any central administration. Since the Mobile Ad Hoc network has the natural ability to change the existing topologies in a rapid fashion, routing protocol plays a pivotal role in communication among nodes in the network. But in reality, nodes in the network are often vulnerable to various security attacks. Pulse Jammer Attacks is one such attack which restricts the nodes from communicating with its neighborhood nodes in a reliable fashion, so that it becomes responsibility of the routing protocol to deal with these types of attacks. This paper deals with the Pulse Jammer Attacks (PJA) and its consequences on proactive and reactive routing protocols such as Ad Hoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV), Geographical Routing Protocol (GRP) and Optimized Link State Routing Protocol (OLSR).The simulation of the above mentioned protocols is done by taking into consideration various node characteristics under different scenarios using OPNET simulator. Then the detailed performance analysis is done by comparing the outcome of different scenarios and with the help of this analysis results network designers can be able to decide on the better performing routing protocols for MANET under PJA which may result in designing the network which withstand PJA.
