The full name of New OT V is Audited New Era Dianetics for OTs — Audited NED for OTs, or even shorter, Audited NOTs. In the late 1970s, LRH got very sick and was near death. He called for David Mayo who started auditing LRH and saved his life. The outcome from this auditing was the discovery of a previously unforeseen area of charge that could booby trap a person moving up to higher levels of spiritual capabilities as it did with LRH himself. LRH engineered the handling for this sector of case and had David Mayo write up the tech for export.
